ELSIcon2024: The 6th ELSI Congress will take place at Columbia University in New York City from June 10-12, 2024.

The 6th ELSI Congress welcomes all with an interest in the ethical, legal, and social implications (ELSI) of genomic research. Researchers, scholars, practitioners, trainees, policymakers, journalists, and the general public are invited to share and explore the latest ELSI research at ELSIcon2024.

Social, cultural, political, and economic developments around the world, along with the rapid technological transformation of genomic science, raise considerations for the ethical conduct and equitably beneficial implementation of genomic discovery. ELSIcon2024 will focus on innovative, integrative research and scholarship on the potential benefits of genomics research while embracing a wide range of ELSI topics from across the broadening genomic landscape.

Join us for three Plenary sessions on:

  • Indigenous Sovereignty
  • AI and Data Bias
  • Clinical Genetics in the Context of Rare Disease

Coming soon! Check back for more information on the program and registration.
