This event was held on May 21, 2009 at Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room
At this session- the last of four forums on the topic of biobanking- guest panelists will review topics from the other forums and will give participants the opportunity to reflect on the previous sessions and to examine lingering questions, concerns, hopes, and anxieties about this rapidly developing approach to genetic research. The goal of this four part discussion series is to spark a dialogue among members of the Ann Arbor community regarding the implications of biobank development.
The discussions will be moderated by Susan King, Associate Director of the Life Sciences and Society Program and George Lambrides, Executive Director for the Interfaith Found Table of Washtenaw County. These forums are hosted and facilitated by the Life Sciences and Society Program of the University of Michiganâ€™s School of Public Health, in conjunction with the Interfaith Round Table of Washtenaw County.
