Drawing on a study of the biobank held by Children of the 90s, this event will provide a forum for discussing views of the placenta as an object that 'tells a story'. Expect a lively conversation on a topic that is rarely discussed in public and hear about research on the social, medical, and scientific views of the placenta.
During this discussion, we will discuss the recent Children of the 90s study and explore audience perceptions of the placenta and the kind of 'stories' a placenta could tell based on the interviews with originators and participants in the study.
We will also discuss what it means to donate tissue for research use and the different types of ethical/ social issues that this may involve and consider what a biobank looks like and how we imagine the places where human tissues are stored for research.
