Ethical Dilemmas in Delivering the Benefits of Genetic and Genomic Research

Innovative genetic technologies are changing the face of medical care as they move from bench discoveries to clinical applications. The potential benefits to individuals and to the public are significant,including individualized treatments, targeted medications, lifestyle changes, and informed reproductive choices. Yet many aspects of the development process involve dilemmas for researchers, research participants, medical professionals, and patients. This talk will present several (mostly) realistic cases that involve aspects of genetics and genomics in current clinical medicine and in research approaches.
