Ableism in Biomedical Research
Maya Sabatello, LLB, PhD
Associate Professor of Medical Sciences, Columbia University
Inclusion of diverse populations in biomedical research makes for good science and fosters equity in research participation, but “diversity” has often been interpreted narrowly to only encompass marginalized gender, racial and ethnic groups. This presentation explores diversity in biomedical research and its relevance for the heterogenous group of people with disability. It will share findings from studies on inclusion in clinical trials and precision medicine research, discuss challenges and ramifications, and consider the bioethical issues that arise.
