The Science and Indigenous Communities Study Group is composed of a group of Chilean, Indigenous, and international researchers, working in human genetics, biological anthropology, bioarcheology, health, and ethics. Our objective is to contribute to the discussion and improvement of the ethical standards of genetic research with Indigenous peoples, through the improvement of genetic literacy embedded in our educational and communication projects. In addition, we want our study group to serve as a platform to promote equitable collaborations between Indigenous communities and researchers that support the sovereignty of the communities.About us
