Establishing the Ethical Framework for Critical Care Genetics

The goal of this NIGMS*-supported study is to explore attitudes and perceptions held by decision makers for critically ill patients (as well as patients themselves, once recovered) regarding gene-based research. We hope that the insights gained will provide guidance to investigators, oversight bodies, and other stakeholders committed to conducting research in the critical care environment in the most informed and transparent manner possible.
