Conor Douglas's Biography

Conor Douglas, Post-Doctoral Researcher, Vrije University of Amsterdam Medical Centre

Conor has a PhD in the sociology of science and technology from the University of York (UK), an MSc in science and technology studies from the University of Amsterdam, and a double BA in sociology and political science from the University of Victoria, in his home country of Canada. His interests are located broadly within the interactions and co-production between biomedical sciences and society (and ‘users’ in particular). He currently holds a post-doctoral appointment at the Vrije University of Amsterdam where he is taking lead research role on the CSG-funded project 'Wealth of data? : Blurring the boundaries and user-roles at the interface of genetics, medical and personal information' (see ), while also undertaking a post-doc at the Rathenau Instituute in The Hague on ‘Synthetic Biology for Human Health: Ethical and Legal Issues’ (or SYHBEL project ) with other European colleagues as a part of the EU’s FP7 Science and Society stream.
