Precision Medicine: Ethics, Politics and Culture

Precision Medicine: Ethics, Politics and Culture

Project Directors: Gil Eyal, Maya Sabatello

Graduate Assistant: Daniel Wojtkiewicz

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 and social sciences are uniquely positions to address. The PMEPC lecture series represents a broad-based exploration of questions that precision medicine raises in law, ethics, the social sciences, economics, and the humanities.


The Precision Medicine: Ethics, Politics, and Culture Project is co-directed by Rachel Adams, PhD, Professor of English; and Maya Sabatello, LLB, PhD, Assistant Professor of Clinical Bioethics. The PMEPC is co-sponsored by Columbia Precision Medicine & Society and the CSSD. 

PMEPC events are free and open to the public. For more information on this project, please visit or email Daniel Wojtkiewicz at
