Topic 3: Should Researchers Share Genomic Results With Participant’s Relatives?
In many types of human research, individual findings might not matter much to anyone besides the participants themselves. Genomic research is a bit different; first- degree biological relatives share 50% of the participant’s genetic material . If researchers discover that a participant carries a gene linked to a dangerous but possibly preventable disease, they know that the participant’s relatives may also carry the gene. Warning these relatives could save lives – yet this rarely happens. Why?
Support- participants should control access to their individual results.
