Better sharing of genetic information in human health
Date:9/12/2013

Montral, September 12, 2013 Since the sequence map of the human genome, the cost of sequencing the genome of an individual has fallen rapidly. This has resulted in a tremendous increase in the amount of human genomic data available to the international research community for the advancement of biomedical research. Yet, there is an absence of international mechanisms to support researchers in ensuring ethical and legal interoperability. In addition, the multiplicity and diversity of laws, standards and policies on sharing and accessing genetic and medical data represent major hurdles to international collaboration.

To address this gap, the Public Population Project in Genomics and Society (P3G), in partnership with the Centre of Genomics and Policy (CGP) at the McGill University and Gnome Qubec Innovation Centre, is proud to announce the launch of the IPAC, (International Policy interoperability and data Access Clearinghouse), a new resource to both promote the interoperability of international norms and to facilitate the sharing of clinical and research data.

Building on the expertise of P3G and the CGP, the IPAC will offer a "one-stop" service for national and international collaborative research projects. It will provide normative tools and frameworks that respect the laws and regulations of each country while facilitating access.

"As a policy interoperability tool provider and a data access broker, the IPAC will harmonize projects to ensure successful ethics, privacy and access review, thereby reducing unnecessary bureaucracy and delays," said Professor Bartha Maria Knoppers, co-founder of P3G, Canada Research Chair in Law and Medicine and Director of the Centre of Genomics and Policy.

"We applaud the development of new resources that serve to advance research in Qubec. IPAC is a great example of how concerted, forward-looking action can help to meet current and future challenges in genomic research and enhance the c
