Genomics and Public Health in the United States: Signposts on the Translation Highway

Gwinn M. · Khoury M.J.
Office of Genomics and Disease Prevention, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Atlanta, Ga., USA Community Genet 2006;9:21–26 (DOI:10.1159/000090689)


Successful completion of the Human Genome Project has raised public expectations that research findings will translate quickly into health benefits; however, the gap between biomedical research and clinical and public health application seems wider than ever. Public health scientists now have the opportunity to help create a broad concept of research translation that integrates genomic information into policies, programs and sevices benefiting the whole population. Important ’signposts’ along the translation highway include conducting population-based reearch in genomics, developing evidence on the clinical and public health value of genomic information, and integrating genomics into health practice.
