Sara Chandros Hull, PhD

Sara Chandros Hull received her undergraduate degree in molecular cell biology and genetics from Brandeis University and earned a PhD from the Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health/Program in Law, Ethics and Health in 1999. Her graduate training focused on social science research methods to conduct empirical research in bioethics and public health policy. During her graduate studies, Dr. Hull also worked on the staff of President Clinton's Advisory Committee on Human Radiation Experiments.

As a faculty member in the Department of Bioethics, Dr. Hull's research and capacity building interests focus primarily on the intersections between research ethics and genomic research. Current projects consider diverse representation in research, health disparities, commercial genetic ancestry testing, the relationship between genetics and the social determinants of health, the role of lay expertise in ethical oversight, and approaches for developing collaborative research ethics training programs with American Indian and Alaska Native Tribal IRBs and research review committees.

Dr. Hull directs the Bioethics Core of the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), which provides bioethics education, consultation, and administrative support to investigators in the intramural research program. She also serves as a Chair of the NIH Intramural Institutional Review Board.
