In collaboration with the Research Center for Islamic Legislation and Ethics (CILE), Qatar Genome Programme (QGP) will organize an international conference on the Policies, Regulations, and Bioethics of Genomic Research. This is a two-day conference which will take place in Doha, Qatar on 29-30 April 2018. The second day of the conference will be dedicated to the Islamic bioethical perspectives.
As part of its 2015 summit held in Doha, Qatar during the period 17-18 February 2015, CILE and WISH jointly organized a panel on "Healthcare and Ethics: Genomics" on 17 February 2015, 14:00-15:30. This was the second consecutive panel under the broad title "Healthcare and Ethics" jointly organized by WISH and CILE. The panel of last year focused on end of life issues, especially palliative care. The panel of this year addressed another key-issue in bioethics, namely genomics, which is also a hot topic now in the Gulf region and particularly in Qatar.
