Mind the Risk: Final conference 29 November 2019
How do humans respond to genetic risk information? Is it always good to know? How can you avoid raising unnecessary concerns about what the future holds? These questions, and others, have been investigated by the Mind the Risk project, an international multidisciplinary research team for six years. Together with the national genomics infrastructire, Genomic Medicine Sweden, the Mind the Risk project invites you to a conference to present the genomics research and the results of the project, and discuss benefits and risks together with different actors.
WHEN: 29 November
WHERE: Clarion Hotel Gillet, Uppsala
