Neurogenetics in society


The current revolution in gene editing and neuro-technologies is reaching beyond animal research into the human sphere, with tremendous therapeutic potential but also raising urgent challenges in ethics, law and philosophy.

Neurogenetics sparks important public discussion and demands effective dialogues between science, law, ethics, philosophy and the arts. We are researching into the cultural impact of neurogenetics, public perceptions of science, trust of science, cultural narratives surrounding STEM, philosophy and ethics of science.
