MyBio

The MyBio project investigates our moral, social, cultural, and personal responses to the strange and different in human biology and in possible “transhuman” creatures, in order better to tease out and provoke discussion about genetically modified human/animal hybrids in actual and near-future biotechnology. In particular the project explores the relationship between children’s learning of the categories of the animal/human, and the extent to which such categories can be considered merely contingent and revisable in the light of technological change.

The MyBio project was supported by collaborations at the London Institute of Education, the Science Learning Centre and Imperial College, and was funded by the Wellcome Trust. Project Collaborators:  Prof Richard Ashcroft and Prof Michael Reiss.
