Announcing Early Career Workshop – Monday, June 27th

The University of Warwick, Coventry, UK

Monday, June 27th 2016

Call for papers now open!

This one-day workshop brings together early career researchers to examine the meanings, uses, and consequences of social justice ideals in biomedical practice and research. The papers will examine the increasing entanglements between biomedical and genetic research with ideas of social justice and inclusion – opening up discussion about social justice, science and medicine in the UK, as well as in a comparative global context.

Our key note speaker is Professor Jenny Reardon from the University of California, Santa Cruz. Reardon is the author of Race to the Finish: Identity and Governance in an Age of Genomics (Princeton University Press, 2005) and The Postgenomic Condition: Ethics, Justice, Knowledge After the Genome (forthcoming with Chicago University Press).
