Recent advances in life sciences have brought about a transformation of the biotechnology industry, turning it into one of the largest and most steadily growing building blocks of the global economy. The social impact is overwhelming, generating tremendous progress in quality of life, but also strong reactions that need responsible management based on solid ethical principles.
