BioSocieties welcomes Anne Pollock to the editorial team!

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Anne Pollock (Georgia Institute of Technology, USA) to the BioSocieties editorial team, as Associate Editor. Dr. Pollock’s expertise and experience are a welcome addition to the journal and we warmly welcome her aboard.

Dr. Pollock is an Associate Professor of Science, Technology and Culture at the Georgia Institute of Technology and she is also the Coordinator of the Graduate Certificate in Science, Technology and Society. Her research and teaching focus on biomedicine and culture, theories of race and gender, and how science and medicine are mobilized in social justice projects, and she is especially interested in how medical categories and technologies are enrolled in telling stories about identity and difference. Dr. Pollock’s ongoing projects explore three key areas: feminism and heart disease; American health disparities and citizenship claims; and drug discovery efforts by and for the global south (especially South Africa).
