Haas Distinguished Chair

Osagie K. Obasogie is the new chair of the Haas Institute's Diversity and Health Disparities research cluster. Obasogie, Professor of Bioethics in the Joint Medical Program and School of Public Health, focuses his research on racial disparities in health, the myth of "colorblindness," and how blind people "see" race. Some of his research looks at how new reproductive and genetic technologies—stem cell research, assisted reproduction, race based medicines, designer babies, etc.—impact society and, in particular, vulnerable communities (e.g. racial and sexual minorities, women, people with disabilities, poor people, etc.).
