Genetic Medicine; What are the Ethical Issues Study Day.  On 16th January 2016 CELS hosted a very successful a day in conjunction with Lifelong Learning lead by experts from within Southampton. The theme for this day was a series of talks about genetic testing and included issues such as: What do my genes say about me? How do we manage unexpected results? What are the limits to consent and confidentiality and genetic testing during pregnancy?
