One of our missions was to train the next generation of ELSI researchers by providing individuals with the experience, knowledge, and skills they need to be centrally involved in explicating the forces shaping genomic science and medicine, and in examining the impact of genomics in multiple domains.

A core group of post-doctoral fellows and graduate student trainees engaged with CGS investigators in research and policy activities, and worked with their mentors to develop individualized training plans and research projects.
CGS training activities modeled and promoted skills essential to ELSI research and interdisciplinary collaboration.

Activities included:

  • Collaborating with CGS investigators on research projects and policy initiatives

  • Co-authoring with CGS investigators

  • Designing and conducting independent research projects

  • Participating in CGS training seminars/journal club/writing group/professional development courses

  • Participating in cross-CEER training activities

  • Attending courses/workshops in bioethics, medical genetics, and empirical and conceptual research methods

  • Presenting ELSI research at conferences
