Editorial Reviews

Review


"The topics the book covers represent a pantheon of issues relating to genetic translation, from the political underpinnings to the historic uses of newborn screenings. The chapters covering prenatal and neonatal screenings are especially well done." -- Doody's


"There are several challenges in promoting genetics research to reduce disparities... most challenging is that social determinants of health are probably more important than genetics for reducing disparities. The editors and contributors of Achieving Justice in Genomic Translation rightly emphasize the importance of making 'these implicit trade-offs explicit in public debate' (p 197). They should be congratulated for initiating the conversation." -- Lainie Friedman Ross, MD, PhD, JAMA
