Hi there,

Just want to say hi. I see the group is small, but it has the potential to grow. I've always been interested in ethics in science, especially bioethics.

Great DNA picture!

Welcome! What topics are you most interested in??
My interests focus on ethical issues in genetics and biotechnology...also clinical bioethics.

Seems like a group I might be interested in. Not an area I have any books on though. Anybody got any general recommendations?

Interested in GMO, balancing third and first world resources, regulatory and patent issues, monculture and environment, and ethics in research.

I find all of the above interesting, and would add ethics relating to medical practices, pharmacy, etc.

#6 - Although I know the name, I've not read any of his books - perhaps if you want to start this on a seperate thread (to avoid cluttering up this introductions one) I'll see if I can respond to some of your concerns? about his positions.
