The key-note lecture will be held by Tsjalling Swierstra, Professor of Philosophy, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, Maastricht University.
During the course the relation between technology and (medical) ethics will be studied. Focus of the course are the moral problems generated by the research and development and application of new knowledge in a range of emerging fields such as tissue engineering and genomics. The implications give rise to new images of the human being and shift common understanding of health and disease.

Topics are, amongst others, research ethics, screening and testing from clinical perspective, Health Technology Assessment, translational medicine and storage and analysis of (genetic) data and social aspects and effects of developments in medical technology.
