The Race Debates… from Philosophy to Biomedical Research is a two-day conference that brings together experts from the philosophical race debate (who tackle questions like “What is race?”) and experts from the biomedical race debate (who tackle questions like “Is race useful in genetic epidemiology?”) in order to make progress in both race debates.
