PIRC members carry out a range of qualitative and quantitative studies of social, legal, ethical, and clinical issues surrounding prenatal testing. Our goal is to engage a full range of stakeholders in discussions around which prenatal testing technologies should be available, to whom, at what cost, and with what support and counseling services. Below, please find links to our ongoing studies. Descriptions and results from past studies can be found on the Publications page.
