Islamic Ethics & Genomics: Specialized Knowledge as Public Discourse
It will take place on Wednesday, January 30, 2019 from 7-9 AM, at Sidra Medicine Auditorium.

The lecture will also remark two important events, namely (1) the kick-off of the research project Genomics, Islamic Bioethics and Public Engagement: Towards Bridging the Knowledge Gaps, funded by the Qatar National Research Fund (QNRF) and (2) the recently published volume by the Research Centre for Islamic Legislation and Ethics (CILE), Islamic Ethics and the Genome Question (Brill, 2019).
