    Strategies to Guide the Return of Genomic Research Findings: An Australian Perspective.Lisa Eckstein & Margaret Otlowski - 2018 - Journal of Bioethical Inquiry 15 (3):403-415.
    In Australia, along with many other countries, limited guidance or other support strategies are currently available to researchers, institutional research ethics committees, and others responsible for making decisions about whether to return genomic findings with potential value to participants or their blood relatives. This lack of guidance results in onerous decision-making burdens—traversing technical, interpretative, and ethical dimensions—as well as uncertainty and inconsistencies for research participants. This article draws on a recent targeted consultation conducted by the Australian National Health and Medical (...)

    Donor Perspectives on Issues Associated with Donation of Genetic Samples and Information: An Australian Viewpoint. [REVIEW]Margaret Otlowski - 2007 - Journal of Bioethical Inquiry 4 (2):135-150.

In particular, it addresses the property status of samples as well as issues in respect of consent, privacy, commercialisation and benefit sharing. The paper highlights the need for appropriate protection and safeguards for individuals, but also, importantly, for understanding what donors actually think and want in terms of genetic research and the use of their samples and information. The paper (...)

    Exploring the Concept of Genetic Discrimination.Margaret Otlowski - 2005 - Journal of Bioethical Inquiry 2 (3):165-176.
    The issue of genetic discrimination has attracted growing attention and has been the focus of a recent major Australian inquiry. It is, however, a complex and loaded notion, open to interpretation. This paper explores the concept of genetic discrimination in both its theoretical and practical dimensions. It examines its conceptual underpinnings, how it is understood, and how this understanding fits within the legal framework of disability discrimination. The paper also examines the phenomenon in practice, including the ‘fear factor’ and the (...)
