Geneforum partners with University of Guanajuato, Mexico to create bioethics resource for Latinos

Geneforum has added two new members to its Advisory Board - Victoria E. Navarrete Cruz and Fernando Anaya-Velazquez. Both head up the University of Guanajuato's bioethics center (Centro de Investigaciones en Bioethica (CIB) in Mexico.

Victoria and Fernando have agreed to become active Geneforum bloggers (in Spanish and English) on bioethics topics and policies shared by--and different from--those in the U.S. and Mexico. In the process, it is hoped that Geneforum will become an important bioethics and health-related educational resource for Latinos living and working in the U.S.

Both Victoria and Fernando have the capacity to make significant contributions to these fields--as well as to graduate students enrolled in the Oregon Masters of Public Health Program at Portland State and Oregon Health and Sciences universities, notably in the area of public health genomics.
