Summary
"Genetics is at the forefront of medical research, but it is rarely used in Indigenous health research projects. In the past, proposals to conduct genetic studies in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in Australia have been highly criticised and rarely funded. However, genetic researchers worldwide argue that genetics has the potential to reduce health disparities (including Indigenous health disparities) in multiple ways: through understanding disease pathogenesis, using genetics to probe environmental risk, predicting disease risk, finding novel diagnostics and drug targets, and pharmacogenomics"--Preface
