Welcome to ELSIhub--Your Portal for ELSI Resources

We are delighted to welcome you to ELSIhub!

The Center for ELSI Resources and Analysis (CERA) created ELSIhub to provide you with a wide variety of resources and analysis focused on the ethical, legal, and social implications (ELSI) of genetics and genomics. We started this project with a needs assessment process that gathered insights from members of the ELSI community and beyond. We worked closely with professionals in all areas of website development. However, the portal as you see it today is only the beginning! Active and collaborative users are vital to the expansion of the ELSIhub knowledge base. ELSIhub is your resource.

Bookmark the pages of interest to you. Share your expertise, opinion pieces, media mentions, jobs, events, and research tools. Send us your ideas for ELSI Friday Forums and email us to start conversations and continue debates on the issue that matter most. Join the ELSI community and support CERA by contributing content. Email your thoughts and suggestions to [email protected].

We sincerely look forward to working with you on this new project.
