Bio

Joon received his MPH and PhD in public health genetics at the University of Washington and was a trainee of the Center for Genomics and Healthcare Equality (UW Center for Excellence in ELSI Research). His over 10 years of experience in the non-profit sector working on minority heath issues has greatly influenced the direction of his training and research. His interests span the ethical, legal, social implications (ELSI) and translation of genomics, including the translation of genomic technologies in underserved populations, minority participation in research, theories of justice, and the use of race and ancestry in biomedical research.
