or the measurement of the immune response to licensed and candidate vaccines to Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae, and Neisseria meningitides. She has developed assays for the measurement of functional antibody activity specific for pneumococci and Haemophilus species. Romero-Steiner has also been involved in immunogenicity studies of people who have undergone bone marrow transplants and splenectomies, have sickle cell anemia, or are HIV positive.
  • George Armelagos is the Goodrich C. White Professor of Anthropology and Department Chair at Emory University. He will give a presentation titled The Road to the Viral Super Highway: Emerging Disease in the Time of Globalization. Armelagos is a biological anthropologist who researches the interaction of biological and cultural systems within an evolutionary context, particularly focusing on diet and disease in human adaptation. He revolutionized the study of ancient disease in human populations by promoting an epidemiological approach and highlighting the evolutionary and ecological factors that are instrumental to the disease process. Armelagos has been a central player in the establishment, development and promotion of the field of bioarchaeology. His current research looks at race and its utility as a concept for understanding biological variation in human populations. He is the coauthor, with Peter Farb, of Consuming Passions: The Anthropology of Eating.
  • Sandra Soo-Jin Lee, the senior research scholar at the Stanford Center for Biomedical Ethics at Stanford University, will give a presentation titled The Ethical Implications of Representing Evolution and Interpreting Difference. Lee is an anthropologist who studies race, ethnicity, and culture in science, technology, and biomedicine. Her research focuses on the social and scientific meanings of race in human genetic variation research and their implications for understanding human differences. She has conducted a stud
