Genes, Cells and Brains: Promises of the new biology (part of the Times Cheltenham Science Festival) Event

6 June 2013
The Times Eureka Tent, Cheltenham

Event details

The human genome project, DNA biobanks, stem cell research and the brain sciences have all made extravagant claims: we’ll cure diseases like cancer and schizophrenia; we can explain who we are using DNA and nerve cells. Where is the new world we were promised? Feminist sociologist Hilary Rose and neuroscientist Steven Rose deconstruct these extravagant claims by dissecting both the science and the political economy of these vast projects.
