The Future of Bioethics

An underlying rationale for limitations on individuals’ access to their genetic research results is the concern that individuals might use their genetic information in ways that could be harmful to them. For example, an individual might engage in risky behaviors she otherwise would not undertake because she misinterpreted genetic risk information as determinative rather than as probabilistic. Yet some commentators – as well as some research participants – contend that individuals have a right to all of “their own genetic information.” Thus, it remains unclear whether people will continue to participate in genetic research initiatives that use a conditional-return approach.

Keywords:   Genetic research, genomic research, biobanks, return of genetic research results, return of genomic research results, genomic-based medicine, personalized medicine
