The November/December issue of Minnesota Medicine features PDF icon an article by Consortium Chair Susan M. Wolf about the legal and regulatory underpinnings needed to advance genomic medicine. It is part of a special issue on the future of medicine, and provides an overview of the NIH-funded LawSeqSM project Wolf co-leads with Ellen Wright Clayton (Vanderbilt University) and Frances Lawrenz (University of Minnesota). LawSeqSM is dedicated to analyzing current US federal and state law and regulation on translational genomics. Results of the effort will be the development of consensus guidance on what the law should be, as well as the creation of a website aggregating the statutes, regulations and case law related to genomic medicine. The Minnesota Medicine article was co-authored by Kathryn Grimes, Communications Director for the Consortium.
