Located within the McGill Genome Centre, the Centre of Genomics and Policy (CGP) works at the crossroads of law, medicine, and public policy. Applying a multidisciplinary perspective and collaborating with national and international partners, the CGP analyzes the socio-ethical and legal norms influencing the promotion, prevention and protection of human health.

Currently, the CGP’s research covers several areas of genomics and policy that include: stem cell research and therapies, personalized medicine, prevention and treatment of cancer, data sharing in research, pediatrics, genetic counselling, digital health and AI, intellectual property and open science, epigenetics, intersex and diversity in health, gene editing, genetic discrimination and biobanking (population genetics).
