Are your genes your destiny? The science of Gattaca

Presented by the Centre for Values, Ethics and the Law in Medicine (VELiM)

Are your genes your destiny? The science of Gattaca

In the 20 years since Gattaca debuted, there have been huge advances in human genetics. While the integration of genetics into the clinic is accelerating, there is also increasing commercial interest in offering DNA testing for health, fitness, and ancestry.

Revisit Gattaca on its 20th anniversary, with this free screening of the film.

The screening will be followed by a discussion from multi-disciplinary, expert commentators, that will help start a national conversation about where we are at in genetics and where we’re going.

This is a free event, but registration is essential.
