Human Genome Project

From 1991 to 1994 CTNS ran a project on the ethical and theological implications of the Human Genome project, with Robert Russell and Ted Peters serving as Co-PIs. For this three-year project, CTNS scholars explored the theological assumptions underlying the ethical debates surrounding the NIH research to map and sequence the human genome. The program included six national and European conferences and produced several publications, including Genetics: Ethics of Social Justice, edited by Ted Peters. This program was funded by the National Institutes of Health.
