Scott Williams, PhD, joins colleagues on a commentary regarding race and genetic ancestry

Scott Williams, PhD

A recently published commentary in the Journal of Clinical Investigation explores what the authors call the “quagmire” surrounding race and genetic ancestry when it comes to identifying—and preventing—health disparities. The commentary can be found here

Williams joined his colleagues Sarah Tishkoff, PhD, and Giorgio Sirugo, MD, PhD, both with the University of Pennsylvania, in authoring that commentary. He recently participated with them in a more in-depth Q&A featured in the University of Pennsylvania’s Penn Today.
