Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


As various stakeholders in biomedical research and clinical practice laudably move toward a data sharing culture, challenges arise. In particular, privacy and data privacy regulation play a large role in defining the proper contours of global data sharing. In this chapter, we outline the practices and benefits of genomic and clinical data sharing; the dimensions of privacy and data privacy regulation that challenge data sharing; and the ways in which one organization, the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health, is addressing these challenges.
