Experts give top concerns on genetic tests

Written by John Donnelly on February 2, 2012

In the final session today before the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues, Chair Dr. Amy Gutmann asked all the experts who presented information to talk about their greatest concern with genetic tests.

Gutmann, the President of the University of Pennsylvania, told them: “The Commission is very likely to focus its report on issues of privacy broadly construed. Anything that is relevant to privacy would be of great interest to the Commission.”

Among the responses:

Jane Kaye, Director of the Centre for Law, Health and Emerging Technologies at Oxford University: “I would say I see the whole genome sequencing is another twist on things happening already on science. … What we need to do is make (privacy concerns) more nuanced and allow individuals to say how whole genomes are used.”
