J Patrick Woolley

J. Patrick Woolley applies his training in philosophy to the analysis of normative issues that arise in our increasingly pluralistic societies, where cultural and demographic differences need to be respected in the pursuit of a societal good. In postdoctoral research undertaken at HeLEX, he combined this with his research experience in genomics to examine the changing role of consent in biomedical research and the new “social contract” that is emerging as a result of widespread sharing of genomic data. He is a member of Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH) task teams which consider questions in ethics review equivalency and develop ELSI related metadata procedures and technologies.
