CLB Journal Club with Nanibaa' Garrison


May 16, 2011 12:45pm - 2:00pm

Room 271
Stanford Law School, Room 272

Journal Clubs are opportunities for informal discussion, in which students and faculty explore a topic of interest in law and the biosciences. This week, Nanibaa' Garrison will facilitate discussion.

Title: Who has my genetic information? The dbGaP Data Sharing Policy and Concerns raised by American Indians.

Description: This talk will serve as an exploration into the ethical and legal issues with the NIH Database of Genotypes and Phenotypes (dbGaP) policy on data sharing. We will discuss the dbGaP policy in light of unique concerns raised by American Indian tribes on community consent, identifiability, and data ownership that may directly conflict with dbGaP policies.

Bio: Nanibaa' Garrison, Ph.D., is a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Integration of Research on Genetics & Ethics (CIRGE) at the Stanford Center for Biomedical Ethics. Her interests include genetic research ethics and issues in informed consent, primarily in American Indian tribes.
