The Consortium’s NIH-funded grant on the law of genomics, led collaboratively with Vanderbilt University, has just published a major symposium in the Journal of Law, Medicine & Ethics on "LawSeq: Building a Sound Legal Foundation for Translating Genomics into Clinical Application." The symposium features three open-access articles offering recommendations on legal changes to address liability threats, quality challenges in genomics, and confusion between different domains of genomics (research, clinical care, public health, and direct-to-consumer). Additional articles address further legal and policy challenges including privacy and research participant protections, stakeholder perceptions, and sound regulatory approaches. The full symposium is available online and on the Consortium website.
