Clinical Sequencing Exploratory Research (CSER): Clinical sequencing in cancer: Clinical, ethical, and technological studies
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
The Clinical Sequencing Exploratory Research (CSER) program supports multi-disciplinary projects that bring together clinicians, bioinformaticians, and ethicists to research the challenges of utilizing genomic sequence data in the clinic in the routine practice of medicine. The challenges are many and not disease-specific. Important aims of the research include: development of technical specifications and standards for sequencing in a clinical setting, investigation of methods to transmit genome-scale data to physicians in a fashion and timescale that fits the normal clinical workflow, exploration of regulatory requirements for applying genomic sequence data to patient care, study of physician and patient preferences regarding presentation of genomic information, and study of the ethical implications of returning unanticipated findings.
