Biomedical Ethics and Genomics Research Program

I'm very very happy today. My brother Roberto just told me he got his post-doc in the recently boosted Biomedical Ethics and Genomics Research Program in Mayo Clinic.
I'm super happy for him, but I confess I'm soo happy for myself as well as genetics was my frustrated love since my young years (computers took over). Now I have a chance to be very close to what I think is going to be one of the most polemic subjects in the next 50 years. Well done bro!!

Thanks. I am very excited as well and cannot wait to get there.Biotechnologies elicit a deep social anxiety in America. Along with the promises of scientific development and therapeutic improvment it also raises key questions about what it means to be human, privacy and the correct reproduction of the social order. It is fascinating to have the chance to study these issues first hand.
