Bioethics in Play: The Drama of DNA

The Process of Informed Consent and the Disclosure of Findings in the Genomics Era

The complexity of bioethics challenges that surround the promise of genome sequencing and the power of information generated provides the drama for critically exploring and debating thorny issues. Whether, what, to whom, when, and how findings should be discovered and disclosed is controversial, particularly in determining whose voice matters if children are involved. An original play authored by the speakers and performed by distinguished colleagues (Gail Geller, Jeff Kahn, Nancy Kass, Howard Levy, Maggie Moon, Debra Mathews, Jeremy Sugarman) will bring to life the personal and professional relationships that surround the ethical landscape of genomics, sparking the moral imagination through the lens of others. A lively discussion, to include actor-panelists and audience, will follow the play.
