The University of Pennsylvania Center for the Integration of Genetic Healthcare Technologies (Penn CIGHT) is one of six national Centers of Excellence for research on the Ethical, Legal, and Social Implications (ELSI) of genetics and the human genome. The goal of the Penn CIGHT is to develop tools that will help consumers, professionals, policy makers and insurers understand and cope with the scope of certainty and uncertainty that the application of genetic technologies engender. The work of the center is conducted by teams of experts representing a broad range of disciplines, such as medicine, bioethics, law, behavioral and social sciences, public policy, economics, and research in genetics, genomics, and health services.
