PredictER at the ASBH Annual Meeting

If you are attending 9th Annual Meeting of the ASBH (American Society of Bioethics and Humanities) this weekend in Washington, D.C., do not miss presentations by PredictER's faculty and friends. Scott C. Denne, MD, Timothy Caulfield, LLM, Barbara J. Evans, PhD, JD, LLM, and Peter H. Schwartz, MD, PhD. will address the ethical, legal and social implications of predictive health research, focusing on the essentially collaborative and interdisciplinary nature of research on these issues in their panel session. The panel, Ethics and Regulation of Predictive Health Research: A New Translational Paradigm?, will discuss pediatric biobanks; informed consent; regulatory protections; and patient understanding of risk and genetic information. For a complete abstract, see the American Society for Bioethics and Humanities program description: Sunday, 21 October 2007 - 11:00 AM

Other panel sessions relevant to the ethics of predictive health research include:
