The 5th ELSI Congress: SAVE THE DATE!
June 15 – 17, 2020
Columbia University, New York
Since its founding in 1990, the Ethical, Legal, and Social Implications (ELSI) Program of the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) has supported empirical, analytical and conceptual research to anticipate and address the ethical, legal, and social implications of genomics. Researchers, scholars, community members, and others interested in ELSI research convene for a multi-day, multi-disciplinary meeting, known as the ELSI Congress. The latest in this series of international conferences will take place June 15-17, 2020 at Columbia University in New York.
