Exploring Choice of Law Challenges in Multi-Site Precision Medicine Research
Institution: Georgia State University
FOA Number: PA-17-446
PROJECT NARRATIVE The ability to recruit and protect research participants across multiple sites and multiple states is critical to the success of large-scale precision medicine and other biomedical research supported by the National Institutes of Health and other federal agencies to improve human health. Accomplishing this task requires a clear understanding of which state?s laws apply and under what circumstances, but the empirical and normative foundations for addressing choice of law questions in a research context are lacking. The positive impact of the proposed work will be to begin filling this gap with a multi-faceted assessment of the challenges and potential solutions, laying the groundwork for a robust future proposal to develop and refine a choice of law framework specific to the research environment, together with the practical tools and guidance needed to implement it.
