Wendy Roth, Professor of Sociology, and Ariela Schachter, Professor of Sociology, the Co-Principal Investigators of the NIH R21 grant" How Does Genetic Ancestry Testing Affect Perceptions of Race?" had a profile published on Dr. Roth's NIH-funded research project on the ELSI hub. The ELSl hub is a platform for research on the Ethical, Legal, and Social Implications of Genetics and Genomics.
Dr. Roth and Dr. Schachter's project investigates the relative influence of genetic, phenotypic, and social attributes in shaping how individuals perceive other people’s race. Both Dr. Roth and Dr. Schachter generously shared two research instruments that were developed for the study: a conjoint survey instrument and the Black-White Race Morphs Research Tool, both of which are now accessible in the ELSIhub Research Tools database.
