Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study - Annual Dean’s Lecture in the Social Sciences
Lecture by Alondra Nelson, president, Social Science Research Council, and professor of sociology, Columbia University
In this talk, Nelson will discuss the Obama administration’s Office of Science and Technology Policy and, in particular, the evolution of the Precision Medicine Initiative (PMI) in the United States.
If “health is politics by other means,” as Nelson has argued, how does the good biocitizen understand the PMI and endeavors like it, especially given the explicit efforts of its organizers and emissaries to better address racial and ethnic differences in the gathering of data and distribution of research benefits?
