Since the Human Genome Project, the costs of conducting genome wide association studies (GWAS) have dropped dramatically and the number of studies around the world using such techniques is increasingly rapidly.
More researchers are seeking ethical approval for GWAS, and committees that review research are increasingly being asked to review GWAS or research that includes a genomic component. In response to requests for resources about ethical issues arising in the design and review of GWAS protocols Global Health Reviewers has launched a specialist free online training course entitled Introduction to Reviewing Genomic Research (http://globalhealthtrials.
Global Health Reviewers now has links to over 80 online courses in research ethics, many of which are free.
