Roundtable on Inclusion and Engagement of Underrepresented Populations in Genomics

September 16, 2015

The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) convened a roundtable to discuss the current status of the engagement and inclusion of underrepresented populations in genomics research.

The day-long meeting:
  • Discussed the problem of a lack of ancestrally diverse populations in genomic studies. 
  • Highlighted current genomics research being done to address health disparities.
  • Made recommendations for NHGRI and the scientific community.

NHGRI will present the roundtable report at the National Advisory Council on Human Genome Research (NACHGR) in February 2016.

Links to the report, associated materials and the NACHGR presentation will be posted as they become available.
