Universidad de Deusto

The Inter-University Chair in Law and the Human Genome (Deusto) is an institution funded in 1993 by the BBV Foundation at that time, the Provincial Government of Biscay and the University of Deusto, to which the University of the Basque Country/Euskal Herriko Unibersitatea joined in 1997.

The Chair aims to be an Institution that fosters a rigorous and cross-disciplinal analysis of the ethical and legal implications of the advances in biomedicine in general and genetics in particular, while at the same time making available the benefits of its work for the University Community, professionals of different fields and society at large. The members of the Chair are jurists all of them and the Director is Carlos María Romeo-Casabona.
