Widening the Lens: Using Arts in ELSI Research

April 9, 2021
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Event Description

This Friday Forum will consider how the arts can be employed to bolster public access and understanding of research studies and findings. The event will include presentations of two projects that utilized arts in ethical, legal and social implications research. The first project will focus on storytelling in genomic spaces and the use of community engagement and public deliberation to develop a responsive consent process for pediatric biobanks. The second project will focus on how a theoretical model “entertainment-education” can explain why the use of artistic methods may be more effective for improving knowledge of patients and research participants.
