ASHBi Bioethics-Biology Fusion Workshop: Ethics of Early Developmental Research

We are pleased to announce that the ASHBi Bioethics-Biology Fusion Workshop (Ethics of Early Developmental Research) will be held online on November 12, 2021.

This workshop will cover the latest topics in early developmental research (human embryo/embryo model research, brain organoid, and human-animal chimera research), which has been progressing rapidly in recent years, from the perspective of science and ethics. We hope to have a lively discussion with the speakers and participants of this workshop.

If you are interested in this workshop, please join us.
