Should we start carrying out genomic “screening” in healthy adults?  What types of genes and conditions would provide the most valuable information?  What kinds of genomic information should we avoid?  What is the right population in which to carry out screening?  In what setting should the screening take place?  These provocative questions will be tackled through a pilot study being carried out through the Center for Genomics and Society, an NHGRI-funded P50 Center for Excellence in ELSI Research led by Dr. Gail Henderson in the Department of Social Medicine.
