Research Interests
Bioethics, Genome analysis and sequencing

Whole-genome sequencing is a powerful tool in both research and clinical settings. My research interests involve examining ethical issues associated with whole genome sequencing and other emerging technologies with the goal of providing practical guidance to clinicians and researchers. I also have an interest in clinical ethics, ethics education, research ethics, and am a member of the National DNA Databank Advisory Committee.
