What is Biotechnology? - Video on biotech innovation, genetics and health care - Keynote Speaker

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - BioTech and MedTech Keynote Speaker

Biotechnology is the use of the science of genetics: alteration of genetic code by artificial means, and is therefore different from traditional selective breeding. Biotechnology makes the whole digital revolution look almost as nothing. Digital technology changes what we do.

Biotechnology has the power to change who we are. Biotechnology will alter the basis of life on earth - permanently - unless controlled. This could happen if - say - mutant viruses, or bacteria, or fish or reptiles are released into the general environment.

Germ warfare - mutant bugs could wipe out human life - Biotech Keynote Speaker

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - BioTech and MedTech Keynote Speaker

The thought of catching a cold and then getting cancer is horrifying. Such a scenario has come a big step closer - British scientists trying to make new mutant superbugs out of human cancer genes and viruses closely related to strains causing common cold. Although designed to help find cancer cure, the possibility of accidental escape is alarming.

Even more worrying is the thought that a hundred similar or more dangerous experiments may be going on that we have yet to find out about with military or terrorist use as biological or chemical weapons of mass destruction.

Bone marrow and other tissues could repair your brain, spinal cord and heart and cure diabetes or old-age blindness. 

Clinical trials of many kinds are continuing, after a range of successful studies of stem cell use in animals.  Comment in 2008 with very accurate predictions.

Adult stem cells promise astonishing medical advances and investor returns while embryonic stem cells and therapeutic cloning raise major ethical, legal, and image problems.

Many ethical questions remain about use of stem cells from aborted foetuses, but reseachers are discovering the huge potential of stem cells from a patient's own body.

Gender selection - is it right to chose a boy or a girl?

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - BioTech and MedTech Keynote Speaker

Should gender selection be allowed for parents wanting a baby boy or girl? Gender selection is widely practised around the world. Gender selection is something many parents want: to decide the sex of their children. Gender selection is easy to do but raises huge moral / ethical issues. Gender selection can take place by encouraging in vitro fertilisation (IVF) only by sperm carrying the x or y chromosome. Gender selection can take place immediately after IVF when embryos are tested before implantation. Gender selection can take place when the developing foetus is tested, either genetically or by looking at ultarasound images, with abortion of a foetus if the "wrong sex". Gender selection can take place after birth when one or both parents kills their own baby.

Gene Tests for Insurance – Ethical and Legal Issues

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - BioTech and MedTech Keynote Speaker

Why gene screening for insurance will be allowed to prevent fraud against life insurance companies.

Over the counter gene testing kits create life insurance risks for underwriters, because personal and private gene test results are not available to the insurer when assessing life insurance premiums.

The risk is that widespread requirements for gene tests by insurers could meant that people with certain genes are unable to get life or health cover, which in turn may impact things like eligibility for mortgages.
