Overview

Research Description

Dr. Garrison career has combined genetics with a desire to be involved in studies of health conditions prevalent in American Indian communities, such as type 2 diabetes. Dr. Garrison has submitted a 5-year K01 grant application, ?Genomics and Native Communities: Perspective, Ethics and Engagement.? She will be interviewing Native American tribal leaders, researchers and policymakers to identify issues and barriers to American Indian participation in genetics research. Dr. Garrison will share her findings with the National Congress of American Indians, a board that represents the interests of many tribes. Its Policy Research Center helps set and influence policy at both the federal level and at the tribal level. This project will be in collaboration with mentors Drs. Wylie Burke and Deb Bowen, both at the University of Washington Department of Bioethics and Humanities, and Dr. Ellen Wright Clayton at Vanderbilt.
