What if your biology holds the key that protects others from disease?

Jason Bobe

Databite No. 49

The search for protective factors in health turns the disease research paradigm – and potentially our notions about it – upside down. A collaborative, scientific and social endeavor like this also pushes on many hot topics: closed science & open science; human subjects research & participatory research; privacy & sharing; personal benefits & public benefits; equal access & no access. Jason Bobe leads a conversation about the practice of producing human health research studies.

Jason Bobe is Associate Professor and Director of the Sharing Lab at the Icahn Institute at Mount Sinai.
