The article discusses key findings of a survey of genetic researchers and IRB professionals as a part of Genetic Research Review and Issues Project (GRRIP) to examine their attitudes about genetic research. The survey concluded that while both groups reported dealing with the same set of issues, there still existed a gap in how to address them. Also cited are comments by Karen L. Edwards, professor of epidemiology at the University of Washington.
