The genetic revolution in a societal perspective

Genetics gives us new knowledge about biological relationships, and through genetics, we can better understand health and sickness. However, the uses of genetics also create new challenges for society: Ethical issues, ownership, business opportunities. This talk gives a cross section of the current state of genetics and an idea of how genetics will develop to become an integrated part of our society.

The business of genetics

Health expenses in the developed countries have grown explosively in an age when the citizen demands constantly improved health service. In addition, the population grows older. This calls for original thinking to solve the challenges. Genetic knowledge will be one of the focal points for a paradigm shift in a health vision that focuses on preventive measures and personalized health. The talk provides insight into the world of genetics and an idea of how it will evolve and what business areas and actors that will take part in solving the challenges.
