This project investigates the broad question: How is genomics knowledge translated in health systems and what are the consequent policy implications? Processes of translation involve the production of scientific knowledge, the protection of such knowledge through forms of intellectual property, and the interpretation, application, and commercialization of such knowledge. From a previous project founded in 2001, the team explored environmental translation challenges in genomics, ethics, economic, legal and social studies but is now framing those critical sectors around human health and its implications on policy. In summary, this project will enhance understanding of how genomics technologies are translated and used in health systems, the socio-ethical and legal challenges around such processes, and approaches for dealing with these challenges. The expected outcomes for Canada are technologies that are more socially robust and sustainable.
