I have been fortunate this year to be able to attend the ELSI Personal Genomics Seminar Series at the University of Michigan. This great series has had lectures on biobanking, gene patenting and research ethics for genome studies among others. Speakers have come in from around the country as well as Canada. It’s been great to get different perspectives on different ELSI issues. I’m really excited for an upcoming seminar featuring a point-counterpoint on direct-to-consumer marketing. If you want to check out the webcast of past episodes or find out the dates for upcoming seminars check out http://www.elsi.umich.edu/?q=events.
