Lampert Institute Talk: Genetic Privacy: Fifty Years of Erosion [Wolk Lecture]

Philip Reilly, PhD; Third Rock Ventures

The Idea that Genetic Privacy is a right that should be vigorously protected has been an important theme in bioethics and law for many decades.  While much effort has gone into trying to protect one's privacy, several trends suggest that it will soon be a routine part of health care to acquire and interrogate individual genomes.  While there may be some success in limiting access to one's personal genetic data, technological trends are strongly eroding this posiblity.  What is the best path to take to protect our personal interest in privacy in the Century of the Genome?

Part of the Lampert Institute's "Human Rights" Series. Co-sponsored by the Wolk Fund and the Department of Psychology.
