Emilia Niemiec

Postdoc researcher

Emilia Niemiec investigates ethical, legal and social implications of genomics in SIENNA project. She is a post-doc at the Centre for Research Ethics & Bioethics. During her PhD (Erasmus Plus PhD Programme in Law, Science and Technology) she studied ethical and legal issues of whole genome sequencing. She conducted the first empirical study of direct-to-consumer offer of whole genome sequencing. Emilia holds degrees in Bioethics (MSc, University of Leuven) and Biotechnology (MEng, Warsaw University of Life Sciences).
