Centers (P50) and Exploratory Grants for Centers (P20) for Excellence in Ethical, Legal and Social Implications (ELSI) Research (CEERs): Purpose. The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) is soliciting grant applications for the support of Centers (P50) and Exploratory Centers (P20) of Excellence in ELSI Research (CEERs).The CEER program is designed to develop and support transdisciplinary research teams that have the expertise and flexibility to anticipate, conduct research on, and respond rapidly to a range of ELSI issues related to emerging genome technologies and the growing proliferation of genomic information.CEERs are intended to provide an opportunity to cross disciplinary boundaries and create new research opportunities between and among investigators such as those in the basic genomic and social sciences, clinical and health policy research, ethics, law, the humanities, and various stakeholder communities.Further, CEERs will foster collaborations among people from diverse racial, ethnic, and demographic backgrounds, by engaging members of multiple communities in the planning and conduct of their research, policy, and training activities.In addition, CEERs will play a role in ensuring that relevant ELSI research findings and deliberations on issues related to genome technologies and information are made available to policy makers as appropriate.Finally, CEERs will be responsible for contributing to training the next generation of ELSI researchers, with particular emphasis on training researchers from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, individuals with disabilities, and individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds.
