Speaker
  • Leon Jaworski Professor of Biomedical Ethics, Director, Center for Medical Ethics and Health Policy, Baylor College of Medicine
    BIOGRAPHY

Abstract

It is estimated that by the end of this year more than 1 million people worldwide will have had their genome sequenced. Genomic sequencing is increasingly being integrated into clinical care, in both adult and pediatric populations. In this talk I will discuss two major ethical and policy issues related to the clinical integration of genomics: (1) the psychosocial risks of genomic testing, and (2) the need for robust databases to ensure accurate and useful variant interpretation.

Learning Objectives:

By the end of the session, participants will be able to:
1.    Identify ethical and policy issues related to the clinical integration of genomics.
2.    Discuss the importance of data sharing for genomic medicine.
