Epidapo (Epigenetics, Data, Politics), the french-american joint unit CNRS-UCLA, presents :
The Color of American Genomics: Genetics in the Era of Racialized Medicine
Since the 1960s, American ethno-racial categories have been increasingly used to respond to the inclusion of ethnic and racial minorities in biomedicine and genetics. It has been the researchers’ very dedication to the positive ideals of diversity and to the struggle against medical disparities that has paradoxically allowed racial categories to massively gain ground in science. This half-day symposium aims to shed light on the scope of racialized science and the political and ethical considerations raised by this new paradigm.
- When: Friday, December 9, 2016 from 1:30pm to 4:30pm
