Aditya Bharadwaj – Local and Global Dimensions of Precision Medicine

October 13, 2016
5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Columbia University, New York

Speaker: Aditya Bharadwaj, The Graduate Institute, Geneva

Precision Medicine—an emerging approach for disease treatment and prevention that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle for each person—raises a myriad of cultural, political, and historical questions that the humanities are uniquely positioned to address. As part of its overall Precision Medicine Initiative, Columbia is undertaking a broad based exploration of questions that precision medicine raises in law, ethics, the social sciences, and the humanities.

This event is part of the Columbia Precision Medicine Initiative’s series, Precision Medicine: Ethics, Politics, and Culture.
