Ethical, Legal, and Social Implications of Human Genetics and Genomic Research
This program announcement replaces the regular research grant (R01) component of PA-96-042, The Ethical, Legal, and Social Implications of Genetics Research. This program announcement is designed to solicit research projects that anticipate, analyze, and address the ethical, legal, and social implications of the discovery of new genetic technologies and the availability and use of genetic information resulting from human genetics and genomic research. Of particular interest are studies that examine 1) the issues surrounding the completion of the human DNA sequence and the study of human genetic variation; 2) the issues raised by the integration of genetic technologies and information into health care and public health activities; 3) the issues raised by the integration of knowledge about genomics and gene-environment interactions into nonclinical settings; 4) the ways in which new genetic knowledge may interact with a variety of philosophical, theological, and ethical perspectives; and 5) how socioeconomic factors, gender, and concepts of race, ethnicity, and culture influence the use and interpretation of genetic information, the utilization of genetic services, and the development of policy.
