Author: McCarrick, Pat Milmoe
Abstract: Genetic Testing and Genetic Screening was originally authored by Pat Milmoe McCarrick, M.L.S., a reference librarian at the Bioethics Research Library (BRL) and published in the Kennedy Institute of Ethics Journal, Vol. 3, No. 3, pp. 333-354, September, 1993. This publication has been updated periodically by BRL staff members Martina Darragh, Harriet Gray, and Kathleen Schroeder. Maddalena Tilli Shiffert, Assistant Professor, Department of Biology, Georgetown University, was a scientific advisor on this project in 2011, when this bibliography was last updated. Also in 2011, Katherine L. Record and Melissa K. Bourne of the Georgetown University Law Center, developed search strategies to access the legal literature; these are incorporated into each Scope Note on genetics, along with strategies for other disciplines designed by BRL staff.
