Ethics, Legal and Social Issues

TBGEN Africa will undertake research to better understand relevant social and ethical issues related to genomic research in African communities. TBGEN Africa will test and develop best-practice standards in ethical conduct of genomic research in resource-limited settings as well as in research partnership ethics between “North” and “South” as well as between “South” and “South”.
