Institute for Law, Ethics & Policy


The Institute brings together Scientists, Lawyers and Policymakers to work towards regulating the use of genomic findings to ensure beneficial and equitable use for the benefit of all people.  Findings in genomic-related fields (medicine, education, etc.) have reached a level which requires updated regulation to avoid misuse and ensure positive use. As genomic science is one of the fastest developing and most complex sciences, to successfully address key legal and ethical issues, an interdisciplinary collaboration is essential.

The Institute provides professional training, consultation, reports and expert opinions in relation to legal and ethical matters of genetic findings. To ensure a wide reach, it collaborates with partners internationally including: the USA, Russia, China and Canada.
