Racial and Ethnic Classification in Research and Precision Medicine
This form is an RSVP for the Racial and Ethnic Classification in Research and Precision Medicine Workshop on Wednesday, March 10th from 3:30-4:30pm via Zoom. The zoom link to attend this workshop will be sent to the email used to register.
Current practices and protocols used to characterize human population diversity are rife with conceptual, logistical, and ethical issues. Although self-identified measures such as race and ethnicity are ubiquitous across genomics research and clinical genetics, there are no standards or guidelines for how these data should be collected and used. There is little evidence to justify their use as a proxy for genomic or ancestral background, and yet most clinical geneticists rely on these measures for clinical variant interpretation. This workshop will provide an opportunity for participants to: 1) examine the role of race, ethnicity, and ancestry in your own research and/or clinical practice, 2) discuss whether population diversity is relevant for your particular work, and 3) explore possible alternatives to current practices and paradigms.
We look forward to seeing you there!
