When & Where
Center for Genomics and Society at UNC-Chapel Hill
The Center for Genomics and Society is funded as a Center of Excellence
in ELSI Research (CEER) by the Ethical, Legal, and Social Implications
(ELSI) Research Program of the National Human Genome Research Institute
The Center for Genomics and Society was established to examine the
ethical, legal and social implications (ELSI) unique to large-scale genomic science. Major ELSI questions emerge in association with large-scale studies such as the creation of centralized DNA banks, use of genetic technologies in public health screening, and the rise of gene-based personalized medicine.
