About CGDP

The Coalition for Genetic Data Protection

Consumer genetic testing can empower consumers to take a proactive role in their health, wellness, ethnicity, and origin in unprecedented ways – and millions of consumers have taken advantage of these opportunities. At the same time, genetic data provides unprecedented opportunities for the research community to better understand the role genetics play in our health and well-being as a human population. While we recognize the significant opportunities genetic testing and research present, we also support and advocate for reasonable and uniform privacy regulation that will ensure the responsible and ethical handling of every person's genetic data.
