An international symposium on ethics in biomedical research will be held in Helsinki, Finland, from 21 to 23 August.

The speakers for the event are world class scientists in ethics and biomedicine, and discussions will focus around four key subjects:
- biomedical research as part of society;
- vulnerable groups as research subjects;
- use of genetic information;
- stem cells, embryos and cloning - ethical borders.
