“Early Check” – research project to track disorders identified by newborn screening.

Nancy King, JD and program alumna Chris Bishop, MD, MA began work this fall on a North Carolina-based 5-year research project called Early Check, which is intended to track disorders that can be identified by newborn screening but are not yet in state-mandated newborn screening panels.  King and Bishop are key members of the project team devoted to addressing the ethical, legal, and social implications of the project, which also involves UNC School of Medicine and is led by Research Triangle International.
