Dr. Michie’s work focuses on the experiences of people who are stakeholders in biomedical research, the innovations it produces, and the ways these are translated into clinical care. She has conducted research with genomic research participants, people who have refused research participation, families seeking or dealing with genetic diagnoses, and various stakeholders in new technologies for prenatal testing—including clinicians, test developers, pregnant women, and disability advocates.
