Federal bioethics commission, chaired by Penn prez, meets in Philly [LINKS]

"On Monday, the commission is closing the books on a year's work on 'incidental findings.' It will present its recommendations for what researchers or clinicians should do when they look for one thing and find another. What's the obligation to the patient, for instance? On Tuesday, the commission begins its work on the Obama administration's $100 million BRAIN Initiative—a major push announced in April."
