On Demand Webinar: Human Genetics: From Eugenics to the Human Genome Project and Beyond
Program Overview
Faculty: Tessa Chelouche
Available: 4/20/2016 to 4/20/2018
Fee: None Type: Online
Certificates: CNE/CME/CPE Credits: 1.00

The purpose of this webinar is to explore the chronology of the ethical dimensions of human genetics. Beginning with a brief introduction to biology, DNA research, and human genetics, this webinar will review how genetic knowledge was abused in coercive international eugenics programs in the first half of the twentieth century, focusing specifically on the United States and Germany. Present applications of genetic research, including the Human Genome Project, genetic testing and screening, and gene therapy, can be used to investigate the ethical and public policy questions raised by society’s continued quest for progress through genetic manipulation. Genetic enhancement, behavioral genetics, and racial research represent potential future uses of human genetics, begging the question of how society will come to define and understand what it means to be human.
