Using our cells to develop new treatments or medicines saves millions of lives. But, should you own the rights to your biological material? And should you consent to your cells being used in research?

BrainCraft was created by Vanessa Hill (@nessyhill) and is brought to you by PBS Digital Studios. Talking psychology, neuroscience & why we act the way we do.
