Susanne B. Haga, Associate Research Professor of Biology and Sanford School of Public Policy  

Susanne B. Haga

My research interests focus on issues affecting the translation of genomics to clinical practice. Specifically, I have a strong interest in education, with each of my research projects involving some component of professional, public or patient education, including development of educational materials about genomic research in general, pharmacogenetic testing, and communicating genetic test results, in addition to undergraduate teaching in genetics/genomics, ethics, and policy.

Areas of expertise: Bioethics and Health Behavior
