Event description

Description

This is a free conference and webcast.

Research on genomics and the application of genomics in clinical care is increasingly important. However, the law underlying genomics is currently unclear, poorly understood, and contested. This conference will present the efforts of the LawSeq project to map and shape the law of genomics and build a solid foundation for clinical integration. Principal Investigators, Working Group members, and other top legal and scientific experts have been compiling, collecting, and analyzing current US federal and state law and regulation on translational genomics. This event is an opportunity to hear their thinking on genomics medicine, learn about empirical research they’ve conducted, and inform consensus guidelines.

Registration for in-person participation begins at 7:15 and includes a light breakfast, also available starting at 7:15, and a networking lunch at 12:00pm.

This event is part of the NIH-funded LawSeq project based at the University of Minnesota and Vanderbilt University, with national collaborators. LawSeq is dedicated to building a sound legal foundation for translating genomics into clinical application.
