Since its creation in 1990, the ELSI program has funded hundreds of research projects, conferences, and other activities-through grants, and occasionally contracts. These activities have resulted in a large number of peer reviewed journal articles, books, newsletters, websites, television and radio programs and some early educational materials.
Many of these products are included in this database (updates are still in progress). However, there are likely to be a number of publications missing, particularly those affiliated with older grants.
What's Included in the Database
The ELSI Publications and Products Database organizes the publications for all ELSI projects and activities by the last name of the principle investigator (PI). Each entry also includes, and can be searched by:
A specific topic - or search term - related to an ELSI issue, (i.e., discrimination, genetic testing or privacy)
The name of the author
The name of the journal
The type of grant (i.e., education, research or conference).
The grant number.
The name of the principal investigator.
