Ethics of Engineering Life
Online conference on ethical challenges in the field of synthetic biology
The conference invites stakeholders from the scientific, medical, ethical, political, cultural and religious world across generations into a collaborative discourse about the ethical challenges the field of synthetic biology will be facing in the future.
In order to address the numerous and immanent issues, the conference brings together stakeholders in developing and applying approaches to edit and control living systems, clinicians applying such procedures, ethicists, philosophers, religious leaders, communicators and artists, and other relevant representatives of our global society.
ICEEL aims to provide high-quality, up-to-date information on the scientific advancement of engineering of molecular and cellular systems for clinical applications and the inherent ethical challenges of engineering life. Join us and help create a framework for true ethical discourse about engineering life to take place!
