DOE ELSI Grants, FY 2000
FY 2000 sees the tenth cycle of applications, merit reviews, and awards in the Ethical, Legal, and Social Implications (ELSI) component of the DOE Human Genome Program (HGP). Of 26 applications received and reviewed by a peer panel, the DOE HGP funded 6new, 2 renewed, and 3small exploratory projects for FY2001. These are summarized below. A more complete version and abstracts of previous DOE ELSI projects are on the Web.
DOE ELSI goals encompass research on the uses, impacts, implications, privacy, and protection of genetic information in the workplace and in databases; ELSI implications of complex or multigenic characteristics and conditions; gene-environment interactions that result in diseases or disease susceptibilities; and human polymorphisms. DOE also produces and distributes relevant ELSI educational materials for the public or specified groups, especially Institutional Review Boards and Ethics Boards.
