Short Description:

The major aim of this research is the proactive exploration of the ethical, cultural and societal implications of the application of genomics in sport and to contribute to the development of normative instruments for future (preventive and selective) practices and adequate policy making. We will investigate the way in which physicians, sports men and women and organisations in sport and medicine frame ethical and societal issues raised by the potential applications of genomics in sports and sport medicine, bringing in lessons from one national context to the other, thereby focusing also on international and more specifically the ‘European’ level and its interaction with member states’ policies.
