Is Your Biological Data Safe?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We are in an era in which we are able to “read” biological data via the hardware, wetware, and software tools that are being made available through the technological advancements predicted in the “Carlson Curve," aka the “Moore’s Law" of biology. What do these advancements mean for our current notions of privacy? How could our own personal biological data potentially be used to help us, and how could it hurt us both as a society and as individuals? Join four stakeholders from different areas in the public, government, and private sectors to learn more.
