The Center for Genomics and Society at UNC-Chapel Hill (CGS) began as a NHGRI Center for Excellence in Ethical, Legal and Social (ELSI) Research in 2007.

Our mission is to promote at UNC transdisciplinary, policy-relevant research and to provide training on the ethical, legal and social implications of large-scale genomic studies and their translation into clinical and public health interventions.
