Profile - Egenis
Egenis is the ESRC Centre for Genomics in Society: an ESRC funded centre for the study of the meaning and social implications of contemporary genomic science.
We are a broad interdisiciplinary group of researchers, based at the University of Exeter in the UK, under the directorship of Professor John Dupré.
Egenis is part of the ESRC Genomics Network, which also includes Innogen (ESRC Centre for Social and Economic Research on Innovation in Genomics, based in the University of Edinburgh), Cesagen (ESRC Centre for Economic and Social Aspects of Genomics, based in the Universities of Cardiff and Lancaster) and the ESRC Genomics Policy and Research Forum (based in the University of Edinburgh).
Every application of genomics, from GM crops to human cloning, raises novel but highly contentious societal issues, and Egenis will carry out core research in the field.
