Conference on Emerging Problems in Neuroscience
February 29, 2008 8:45am - 5:00pm
This conference will address the convergence of brain, genetics, and behavior; issues in the neurogenomics of childhood and adult disorders; and problems raised by the collection, banking, linking, and accessing of neuroimaging, genomic, and other data. This conference is intended for students, faculty, researchers, scientists, policymakers, patients, healthcare professionals and organizations, and community members interested in the issues surrounding neurogenomics and genetics.
Following this conference, participants should be able to:
- Discuss the scope and emerging ethical, legal & social implications of neurogenomics research.
- Identify issues raised by research on the neurogenomics of childhood disorders such as autism.
- Identify issues raised by research on the neurogenomics of adult disorders, such as Alzheimer's Disease.
- Analyze the challenges emerging from the collection, banking, linking, and accessing of neuroimaging, genomic, and other databases.
Participant presentations include Mildred Cho, Ellen Wright Clayton, Henry Greely, Eric Juengst, and Judy Illes.
