CGS Seminar, “The Ethics of Omics: Return of Results in Research”
December 8, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The advent of new technologies that allow analysis of entire genomes presents many challenges to the researcher. A great deal of information is obtained through genomic sequencing and such information is highly heterogeneous, ranging from frankly uninterpretable to highly informative regarding the risk for future health conditions. Dr. Evans will discuss some of these challenges and a variety of potential solutions.
James P. Evans, MD, PhD is the Bryson Distinguished Professor of Genetics and Medicine, Director, Clinical Cancer Genetics and The Bryson Program in Human Genetics in the Department of Genetics. He is an expert in medical genetics and cancer genetics.
