This Colloquium focuses on the current and potential legal and regulatory challenges in Philippine genomic research. Possible solutions to such challenges will also be discussed. As it takes stock of the challenges involved in Philippine genomic research and gains better appreciation of the local context of science and technology, the Colloquium seeks to facilitate a conversation about concrete short- and long-term legal and regulatory measures that support efficient, productive and meaningful research in the country.

Full papers submitted to (and accepted by) the Colloquium will be considered for publication. They will also serve as basis for organizing subsequent colloquia on ethical, legal and social issues in Philippine genomics.
