The UC Center for Clinical and Translational Science and Training (CCTST) and Ethics Center of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center invite abstracts for podium and poster presentations at the March 12-13, 2015, conference "Genomics and Ethics in Research and Medical Decision-Making." The conference will feature empirical and conceptual investigations into the ethical aspects of genetics and genomics in diverse research, community and clinical domains in biomedicine.
