AUDIENCE: Hello, my name is Barbara Prainsack. I'm a professor at the Department of Social Science, Health, and Medicine at King's College, London. As a department, we look at all the ways in which health is more than a medical matter. We're an interdisciplinary department. And my own work focuses on societal, ethical, and regulatory aspects of DNA testing and DNA databasing, specifically.

What I will talk about today are some of the societal challenges in and for tissue research and how the concept of solidarity can potentially help us address some of those challenges. I will start by outlining some of the challenges. Then I will say a few words about the concept of solidarity. And I will also say a few things about the meaning of solidarity vis-a-vis other related concepts, such as altruism or reciprocity. And as a third step, I will outline if solidarity can help us in addressing those challenges, how it can help us to do so.
