Do we have the right to edit embryonic genomes? When should people be protected from themselves?
Those and other questions are discussed by the German Ethics Council (Deutscher Ethikrat).
26 members represent scientific, medical, theological, philosophical, ethical, social, economic, and legal matters and its consequences for individuals and the society that arise in connection with research. Especially the field of life sciences and its application to humans is analyzed.
Current topics are for example: Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data, Digitalization, Genome Editing, Bio Ethics, Organ Donation and Rare Diseases Treatment.
The development of new innovative solutions offers a huge positive potential for humanity if it stays in the right hands.
Therefore, for us as integral investors, it is essential to follow experts such as the German Ethics Council and others to guarantee integral investments.
