In partnership with bioVision




The Bibliotheca Alexandrina is proudly hosting BioVisionAlexandria 2004, an international conference, organized in partnership with The World Life Sciences Forum BioVision, that will blend new and old ideas, inventions, knowledge, and also examine the implications as well as the potential applications of biotechnology. BioVisionAlexandria 2004 Conference registration fees are fully funded by the Bibliotheca Alexandrina.

      The first BioVisionAlexandria conference was in 2002, entitled the Egyptian Biotechnology Conference, to be held every even year. It therefore alternates with its sister conference, BioVision.

As we unlock the secrets of life, and learn to manipulate the very building blocks of heredity, who is to be the judge of when what is feasible technically is no longer acceptable ethically? It is natural that we should address ethics, patents and the poor in this important gathering. Discussions on ethics and biotechnology will examine questions of moral responsibility, limitations and boundaries that should be set on research and practical applications, as well as exclusivity versus the sharing of knowledge.
