Ethical, Legal, and Social Implications (ELSI) of Genomic Research R03, R21

Varies | February 16, June 16, October 16

Expires September 2017

Continuing advances in genomic technology are transforming the way genomic research is conducted.  These advances, coupled with rapid declines in the cost of sequencing, are also beginning to transform the practice of medicine.  As the amount of genomic data generated continues to grow, an increasing array of broader societal implications will also be raised.  The purpose of this FOA is to encourage research applications that identify, analyze, and address the ethical, legal and social implications (ELSI) of these advances in genomic research, health care and technology for individuals, families, communities and society more broadly.
