Societal Aspects (WP8)

WP8 will study ethical, legal and social issues (ELSI) surrounding our research through conceptual analyses. We will also concentrate on dissemination, communication and tool-building to promote interoperability in translational molecular epidemiology. This work interfaces with efforts and outputs generated from PHOEBE and P3G including tools and codes of conduct.
