CERA - The Center for ELSI Resources and Analysis
CERA, launched in Fall 2019, is an interdisciplinary center with the twin goals of establishing a reliable digital platform - ELSIhub - for scientists, scholars, policymakers, journalists, and the general public to learn about research on the ethical, legal and social implications of genetics and genomics (ELSI research) and fostering a community of multi-disciplinary researchers focused on high priority ELSI issues. Funded by the National Human Genome Research Institute, ELSIhub|CERA is managed by teams at Stanford and Columbia Universities in partnership with The Hastings Center and Harvard University.
ELSIhub provides a wealth of resources for the ELSI community. Featuring a growing ELSI Publications database of ELSI research, ELSIhub hosts the ELSI Scholars Directory, research tools, videos and webinars, funding opportunities, job listings, events, newsletters, and a new monthly lecture series - ELSI Friday Forum.
ELSI Friday Forum is a monthly one-hour seminar series featuring topics on the ethical, legal, and social implications (ELSI) of genetics and genomics research. Join us from 12:00-1:00 pm ET / 9:00-10:00 am PT on the second Friday of each month for talks and panels on a broad array of issues, explored through an ELSI lens.
Each hour-long forum will be immediately followed by a half-hour informal networking session for audience members who would like to continue the discussion. A zoom link to the networking session will be provided in the Zoom Chat before the end of each forum and emailed to all registrants.
Each forum will end with a Q&A with the audience and speakers: please bring your questions, expertise, and opinions to the debate! For those who cannot attend the live event, each session will be recorded and archived on the ELSIhub Video page.
Closed/open captioning and/or transcripts will be provided for live and recorded events.
