Genetic Research in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities: Beginning the Conversation – August 2011

by Emma Kowal, Lobna Rouhani, & Ian Anderson

“This discussion paper is the outcome of the first ever national discussion of the conduct of genetic research in Indigenous communities in Australia convened by the Lowitja Institute in 2010. It reviews the ethical issues relevant to genetic research in an Australian Indigenous context; existing guidelines for genetic research in indigenous communities internationally; and literature on genetic literacy in Indigenous contexts. Finally, the discussion paper presents a summary of the productive and challenging conversations at the roundtable.”
