Madison received her PhD in Philosophy from Princeton University in 2017, where she wrote a dissertation on ethical issues in genetic testing. Specifically, her thesis explored patients’ moral obligations to their genetically at-risk relatives, providers’ duties to patients’ relatives, and insurance coverage for pre-implantation genetic diagnosis. Before beginning her PhD, she earned a BA in Philosophy from Bates College.
As a Fellow, she will continue to explore moral questions related to genetics while developing an empirical research program in the ethical, legal, and social implications (ELSI) of genetics and genomics. She is especially interested in the issues that arise when genetic testing moves from the clinic to the open market.
