9 Scopus citations


Ruha Benjamin’s approach to human genetic engineering draws on 10 years of research on the social impact and meaning of emerging biotech¬nologies, in particular regenerative medicine and genomics, in which he has examined the relationship between innovation and equity as it connects to socioeco¬nomic class, gender, race and ethnicity, citizenship, and disability. In what follows, He focuses primarily on disability with the understanding that these forms of social stratification, and their intersection with science and technology, are inextricably connected.
