Very nice course! As a space engineer some things were already known but there were the parts of architecture, spaces and design that were kinda missing for me. Really nice and opening my view even more due to my passion in space exploration and human spaceflight!:)

THINK BE DISRUPTIVE

Learn how to deal with DNA evidence

F.A.Q.

Does the course require live participation?

No, the course is entirely on-demand and consists of video-recorded lessons that can be accessed from any device and at any time from the students’ personal dashboard. However, online meetings are organized throughout the year (for members only) for Q&A sessions with speakers and experts in the field.

Who are the instructor?

Dr. Daniel Levi is a Neurosurgeon, Scientist, Clinical and Research Strategic Manager @ Ticino Health, Astrophysics Fanatic, President of the Competence Center for Genetic Engineering, Member of the Swiss Institute for Disruptive Innovation. Prof. Pasquale Ferrante is a World famous virologist, medical scientist and full professor at the University of Milan, with an extensive experience in genetic engineering technologies. Paola Sonni is a lawyer, member of the Swiss Institute for Disruptive Innovation, who has developed a heterogeneous set of skills that arise from the convergence between law, medicine, and new technologies with a specific focus on genome editing.

Why should I take this course?

DNA and genetic engineering will play an increasing role in the field of justice, investigation and forensic science. However, genetics-related technologies are largely overrated, as is the reliability of the results, which are known to be exposed to the risk of human error. More importantly, recent technological innovations and their future evolutions may conceal dangerous threats to the search for truth. Anyone who wants to work in the field of forensic science must necessarily be familiar with genetics and how technologies related to DNA work.

Does access to the courses have an expiry day?

No, the course has lifetime access.

Does the School issue certifications?

Of course, once you have finished the course, you can download the School of Disruption certification, recognized by the Swiss Institute for Disruptive Innovation. The certificate can be attached to your CV or registered on LinkedIn.
