Kristen Rosati on Planning Committee for National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine Workshop on Data Sharing

Partner Kristen Rosati did a talk on the protection of genomic information at Arizona State University’s Workshop on Patents and Data Sharing/Access for Molecular Diagnostics. She discussed the policy tension between individual rights to control genomic information versus support of research that relies on genomic information, and the need for researchers to get involved in the development of policy at the national and state levels. She also discussed the impact of human subject protection regulations for federally-funded research, HIPAA, and state health information confidentiality laws on the conduct of research involving genetic information.
