Irina Nakashidze

Dr. Nakashidze worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Universita degli Studi di Perugia (Italy) between 2016 and 2017. She has been working as an academician at Batumi Shota Rustaveli State University (Georgia) since 2018. She continues her work in the fields of genetics and genomics.

Oliver Feeney

Dr Oliver Feeney is a researcher in the Ethics of Genome Editing Research Unit, Institute of Ethics and History of Medicine, University of Tübingen, Germany. His primary research is on ethical, legal, and social (justice) implications of biomedical technologies, particularly the ethics and governance of genome editing; ethics of human enhancement; polarisation and trust in science and medicine, and the ethical and social justice considerations of patents in new gene editing technologies.  His PhD in political theory, which focused on genetics and justice, was given to him by the School of Political Science & Sociology at University of Galway, Ireland. The thesis was recognized with the 2009 Basil Chubb Prize.

Jean-Marie Fontmorin

Dr. Fontmorin works as a researcher at the Chemical Engineering Research Center of Toulouse (France).
