Thursday, April 19, 2012
6:30 - 8pm
Moot Court Room, Suffolk University Law School

Biotechnology in genetics is reaching heights that the average person can barely imagine. But what are the effects of this unstoppable science, on individuals, the economy, and our society as a whole? If we cannot abate the speed of innovation, how can we better control it or at least mitigate the negative consequences? Attorney Lee Carl Bromberg reveals the tactic of companies patenting genetic code, while Dr. Robert Klitzman,author of "Am I My Genes?" shares the stories of real people whose lives were forever changed by genetic testing. Dominick Ianno, Ford Hall Forum President and Pfizer's Director of Public Affairs, US Northeast, leads us through a discussion of the revolutionary and sometimes frightening future of genetics.
