WPF advises National Institutes of Health re: Genomic Data Sharing Policy

WPF filed comments to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) regarding its Genomic Data Sharing Policy. WPF recognizes that NIH is attempting to create a reasonable standard. Nonetheless, WPF urged NIH to better “future proof” its genomic data sharing proposal, and in particular requested NIH to look further into key areas, including the impacts of “genomic big data” and the limits of deidentification.
