Exciting developments in the life sciences and their application in biotechnology are helping to 
provide pioneering cures and therapies for inherited and degenerative diseases. Consider genomics 
and genetic based therapies, neuroscience and neuropharmacology, ICT implants and prosthetics, 
nanomedicine and the required socio-cultural accommodations to ageing and you will see how the 
way in which we perceive ourselves and those around us is slowly being recast.  As our knowledge 
and its application continues to grow and expand, the range, scope and magnitude of what we are 
able to achieve seems to be limitless.
Building on the success of last years event and the many positive and encouraging comments from 
participants, this years interdisciplinary symposium is convened in order to further build 
capacity as well as consolidate existing scholarship on perspectives on the human body and 
identity in the face of new advances in emerging technologies.
