An article, co-authored by Regents' Professor Gary Marchant, Faculty Director of the College of Law's Center for Law, Science & Innovation, was featured in Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News.

The article titled, Will Liability Drive Personalized Medicine? explores the rapid growth of genetic data and technologies and how it might present additional liability risks to healthcare providers. 

In the article the authors assert that practitioners should exercise extra care in handling genetic information and carefully document each genetics test that is used as well as the reasoning for why other tests were not used.

Marchant co-authored the article with Rachel Lindor, M.D., J.D., a resident at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN.
