Current research: 

As director of the Centre of Genomics and Policy at McGill University, human genomic research and its clinical applications have provided the main focus for my examination of the ensuing or anticipated ethico-legal issues. Within a comparative, international approach to policymaking, I explore the fields of pediatrics, discrimination, access to and sharing of data, biobanking, stem cell therapies, mHealth, commercialization and ethics review. The goal is to promote and realize the human right of every citizen to benefit from science and its applications.
