    This round of Future Debates will consider the benefits and risks of a medical system that uses genomic data. How should it be stored and who should have access? Should everyone’s genome be analysed at birth? And is there a duty to donate your genome, like we do with blood and organs?
    It’s time to join in the debate with our expert panellists;

    Dr Karen Richmond, from the Leverhulme Research Centre for Forensic Science, specialising in the interactions between forensic science and law.

    Dr Tristan Henderson, from the University of St Andrews, with expertise in in data security and networks.
