This month, Dr Mathews provided an overview of the recent NASEM consensus study report that focused on the use of race and ethnicity and other population descriptors in genomics research, including the recommendations made by the committee. She offered some reflections on the report from an ethics perspective and discussed potential lessons for AI-READI. You can find a recording to her talk here.
