Stephanie Malia Fullerton, D.Phil, is Associate Professor of Bioethics and Humanities at the University of Washington School of Medicine. She received a D.Phil in Human Population Genetics from the University of Oxford and later re-trained in Ethical, Legal, and Social Implications research with a fellowship from the NIH National Human Genome Research Institute.
Her work explores researcher and participant perspectives on data-sharing, secondary use, and result return in the context of contemporary genomic research. She is also interested in scientists' understandings of human genetic variation and its relation to disease risk, the use of racial and ethnic constructs in the conduct and interpretation of genetic research, and the responsible incorporation of genomic methodologies into broader programs of health disparities research. She holds adjunct positions in the UW Departments of Genome Sciences and Epidemiology, is an affiliate investigator with the Public Health Sciences division of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, and serves as a member of the Regulatory Support and Bioethics Core of the UW Institute of Translational Health Sciences.
