An anthropological study of the early detection of cancer

An anthropological study of the early detection of cancer

 

Awarding grant body: Philomathia Foundation

I am undertaking ethnographic research within a broad field that concerns the development of diagnostic technologies through to their clinical use and social effects in the UK. Through detailed observations, sensitive conversations and careful participation, I trace the practices and experiences of 'biomedical innovation' in cancer detection that are articulated by scientists, engineers, clinicians, patients, biomedical research subjects and their support networks. Ignaciaimmunophenotype
