In July, The Network for Bodies, Organs and Tissues will host a multi-disciplinary, two day workshop on human tissues. The event provides a forum for discussions of moral, ethical and regulatory issues relating to the access and control of human tissues. It addresses the challenges posed by the different uses of tissues (e.g. reproductive, therapeutic, regenerative, research, education, etc.), and debates about how to manage and resolve tissue based conflicts. Bringing together speakers from a diverse range of disciplines and institutions, the workshop will explore the broader implications of changes in the way we regard the human body, organs and tissues.

Places for the workshop are limited. If you would like to register, please RSVP by Sunday 15 June to .
