In his latest book, Race in a Bottle: The Story of BiDil and Racialized Medicine in a Post-Genomic Age (Columbia University Press), Professor Kahn examines how law, science, and commerce converge in the field of biomedicine to produce distinctive understandings and uses of race as a central organizing concept in the development of pharmaceuticals, biotechnology patents and related medical practice in a post-genomic age.
Dr. Kahn writes on issues in history, politics, and law and specializes in biotechnology’s implications for our ideas of identity, rights, and citizenship, with a particular focus on race and justice. He teaches at Hamline Law in areas of Constitutional Law, Torts, Health Law and Biotethics. Books will be available for signing. This is event is free and will be available via live webcast starting at 5pm CST.
