The Genetics Perspectives on Policy Seminars (GenePOPS) series is designed to explore and illuminate some of the critical issues at the intersection of human genetics and public policy. Hosted by the Genetics and Public Policy Center, which is part of Johns Hopkins University and supported by The Pew Charitable Trusts, GenePOPS will feature some of the nation's leading scientists, medical practitioners, policymakers, patient advocates, and ethicists as they discuss issues as wide ranging as genetic privacy, reproductive genetics, gene doping in sports, and safety and efficacy of commercial genetic tests.
