Bennett McIntosh headshot


I am interested in the contemporary (21st century) history of the life sciences, especially (1) the formation of the field of sociogenomics at the interface of genetics and the social sciences and (2) notions of responsibility in the conduct and communication of science

I entered the History of Science, Medicine and Technology field after having worked as a biochemist, science journalist, and research publicist.
