* PPBT 2005 Summer Seminar Participants*:

"GWEN D’ARCANGELIS has a B.A. in the Biological Basis of Behavior: Neural Systems from the University of Pennsylvania (May 1997), and is currently a Ph.D. candidate in women’s studies at the University of California, Los Angeles. Her research explores social studies of science with an emphasis on gender, race, and nation. As an undergraduate, she was interested in studying the biological mechanisms of human behavior, and worked in biology labs during and after college. After four years of working in neurobiology and genetics laboratories, her scholarly interest shifted to gender politics and the social studies of science—the individual practices, belief systems, and political influences that constitute the messiness of science in reality.
As a scholar currently located in the interdisciplinary field of women’s studies, D’Arcangelis is researching what role science, particularly biological and technological tools, can and should play towards improving the well-being of everyone in society. She is particularly interested in the role that government policies play in shaping the research and applications of biological and technological practices and tools."
