Precision Medicine: Ethics, Politics, and Culture Workshops
September 26, 2016
'Precision Medicine: Ethics, Politics, and Culture' Workshops have started at Columbia, funded by Humanities Division’s Sustainable Worlds Initiative. The workshop series is being led by Rachel Adams, PhD (English, Morningside), Maya Sabatello, PhD (Psychiatry, CUMC). The goals of the workshops include the desire to develop a more coherent set of interests that will allow us to explore more focused, ambitious, and policy-oriented interdisciplinary projects, and to enable the formation of a community of scholars invested in the intersections of precision medicine and the humanities.
Columbia is the first university to explore the implications of PM from the perspectives of the humanities and social sciences.
