Office Hours on the Web

David Goldstein of the Institute for Genome Sciences & Policy did a live one-hour web stream last week to discuss genetics, genomics, racial disparities and his latest work on Hepatitis C treatments.

He's an interesting guy, written up last year in a New York Times article which pointed out that he “does not shy away from unpopular positions or research.” He's also the author of a 2008 book Jacob’s Legacy: A Genetic View of Jewish History which describes the use of genetic tools to examine Jewish history and culture.

This is a new thing we're trying, called Online Office Hours, and it really turned into an interesting discussion.
