Susan Wolf and Robert Green Coauthor New Article on Returning Genetic Results to Research Participants

Friday, March 31, 2023

Professors Susan Wolf, JD, and Robert Green, MD, MPH, have published a new article in the Annual Review of Genomics and Human Genetics examining the rationale for offering genetic results to participants in research involving large-scale and whole genome sequencing (gRoR). They discuss the growing practice of gRoR as the “new normal” in research, though not all studies will be able to support the practice and challenges remain. Return of Results in Genomic Research Using Large-Scale or Whole Genome Sequencing: Toward a New Normal is currently available online. Dr. Green is a Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Director of the Genomes to People (G2P) Program at Brigham and Women's Hospital. Prof. Wolf is Regents Professor; McKnight Presidential Professor of Law, Medicine & Public Policy; Faegre Baker Daniels Professor of Law; and Professor of Medicine at the University of Minnesota. She chairs the Consortium on Law and Values in Health, Environment & the Life Sciences.
