State of the Science: Collection, Protection, and Sharing of Genetic Materials and Results

Dramatic advances in genetic research have occurred over the past decade, but many commentators have argued that our privacy protections, regulatory and ethical oversight, and even the consent process may not be adequate to fully support the emerging field of personalized medicine. To address these issues, we have assembled a group of experts to speak on four broad topics:

Protecting the Confidentiality of Research Subjects’ Genetic Data: An Impossible Task?

  • Bradley Malin, PhD Director of the Health Information Privacy Laboratory, Vanderbilt University

Do Researchers Have a Duty to Return Genetic Results? Ethical and Practical Perspectives

  • Pilar N. Ossorio, Ph.D., JD Associate Professor of Law and Bioethics, University of Wisconsin-Madison

Biobanking and Informed Consent: The Current Regulatory Climate

  • Laura Odwazny, JD Office of the General Counsel, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

Using Genetic Data in Clinical Practice: The Promises and Perils of Personalized Medicine

  • David C Whitcomb MD PhD Professor of Medicine, Cell Biology & Physiology, and Human Genetics University of Pittsburgh
