Abstract: Genetics and genomics are coming to be considered as crucial to clinical care. As the “precision medicine revolution” spreads, cancer treatment, rare disease diagnosis, and cardiac care increasingly use genomics. Yet, law and policy lag behind science, and the law governing genomics remains unclear and contested. LawSeq: Facing the Legal Barriers to Genomic Research & Precision Medicine is the third event from the LawSeqSM project, an NIH-funded project to shape the law of genomics and build a solid foundation for clinical integration.
Audience members will be able to submit questions to a panel of multidisciplinary experts gathered to share their analysis of US federal and state genomics law and policy and recommend changes in order to support successful integration of genomics into clinical care.
