Welcome to Cardiff sciSCREEN

Welcome to the Cardiff sciSCREEN blog. Cardiff sciSCREEN uses cinema to promote the engagement of society in the complex field of biomedical science and genetics. We use films to debate the social and cultural implications of developments in biomedical science in an entertaining and enjoyable way.

At the end of each film there is a panel discussion involving three or four speakers: biomedical scientists, academics from the social sciences and humanities, bioethicists, and other experts. The audience are encouraged to participate in a lively discussion - with one another and the experts - concerning some of the important social, political and ethical issues which the audience believed were raised by the films.
