Online healthcare ethics, university funding review and mapping the brain

This week we take a look at the ethics and regulation of online healthcare, including consumer genetic testing, with our studio guest Hugh Whittall, chief executive of the Nuffield Council on Bioethics, with Science Magazine giving us the US perspective.

Also in the studio is regular guest Diana Garnham of the Science Council with her take on the Browne review of university funding, and Clive Cookson hears about the Blue Brain project in Switzerland which is attempting to reverse-engineer the mammalian brain, in order to understand brain function and dysfunction through detailed simulations.

FT Science is presented this week by Andrew Jack and produced by Emily Cadman
