Abstract

There are several features of genetic and genomic research that challenge established norms of informed consent. In this paper, we discuss these challenges, explore specific elements of informed consent for genetic and genomic research conducted in the United States, and consider alternative consent models that have been proposed. All of these models attempt to balance the obligation to respect and protect research participants with the larger social interest in advancing beneficial research as quickly as possible.
