Ethical Evaluation 

The ethical implications of a biotechnological project might fall in the grey zone, thus not being able to move forward. Risk assessment, mitigation of social, environmental or biotechnological consequences, assessment of legal limitations is paramount in today's rapidly expanding world.

 

We wish for your iGEM project to pursue further development, and we are here to galvanize your process by providing a comprehensive, ethical evaluation of your work!

 

Once filling out the form, which helps us map the directions your research is taking, our team will get in touch with you!
