Hanshi Liu

Research Assistant

 I am currently a McGill student completing a BSc in Life sciences with a major in Physiology. As an intern in the CGP under Dr.Yann Joly, my work primarily focuses on the legal and ethical aspects epigenetic data sharing. The newly emerging science of epigenetics provides researchers with exciting previously unavailable information, however, this new information is typically sensitive in ways that are relatively unexplored in the legal world. I work to understand and examine the legal and ethical distinctions that make epigenetics exceptional from traditional genomics.
