  • genetic modification of foodstuffs and other organisms
  • neuroscience and neuroethics
  • genetic screening and testing
  • stem cell research and reproductive technologies
  • psycho-social aspects of medical genetics and gene therapy
  • the social and ethical issues surrounding biomedical innovation
  • public engagement and political discourse
  • representations of genetics across the media and cultural spheres
  • regulatory policy and governance of biomedical research and its human applications
  • the sociology and anthropology of bio-science and bio-technology
  • bioethics
  • the economics of new biomedical technologies and their place in the ‘knowledge economy’
