Event: The future of reproduction

Tuesday 25 November 2014, 18.45 – 20.45

Anatomy Lecture Theatre, K6.29, King’s Building, Strand Campus

Reproductive technologies are changing the lives of millions across the globe. Developments in this area have given rise to a myriad of reproductive choices; contraceptive methods have dramatically transformed women’s reproductive rights; the introduction of IVF has provided many couples the opportunity to have a biological child; and pre-implantation genetic diagnosis is allowing couples to screen embryos for genetic disorders. But what ethical framework is supporting these developments? What are the social and legal implications? And where do we draw the line?

Professor Bronwyn Parry, Professor in Social Science, Health & Medicine and Professor Rosamund Scott, Professor of Medical Law and Ethics, will draw on current research from across the College to reflect on the potential uses of these new technologies, the importance of reproductive autonomy, and assisted reproductive technologies as a global industry.

This is an event organised by and is open to alumni. If you would like to attend please email: alumoff@kcl.ac.uk
