This PA is designed to solicit research projects that anticipate, analyze and
address the ethical, legal, and social implications (ELSI) of the discovery
and use of new information and technologies resulting from human genetic and
genomic research. Of particular interest are studies that examine issues
and, where appropriate, develop policy options in the following areas: 1)
intellectual property issues surrounding access to and use of genetic
information; 2) the ethical, legal and social factors that influence the
translation of genetic information to improved human health; 3) the issues
surrounding the conduct of genetic and genomic research; 4) the use of
genetic and genomic information and technologies in non-health care settings;
5) the impact of genetics and genomics on concepts of race, ethnicity,
kinship and individual and group identity; 6)the implications, for both
individuals and society, of uncovering genetic and genomic contributions to
not only disease, but also normal human traits and behaviors; and 7) how
different individuals, cultures and religious traditions view the ethical
boundaries for the uses of genetics and genomics.
