Bio/Research

Dr. Fishman’s research centers on the empirical investigation of the commercialization and commodification of new biomedical technologies. She is currently conducting an empirical study of the ethical and social dimensions of anti-aging science and medicine through interviews with anti-aging scientists, clinicians, and patients. She is also currently investigating the recent emergence of direct-to-consumer whole genome scans through interviews with “early adopters” of these new technologies. Whole genome scans are often touted as the precursor to “personalized medicine,” another phenomenon Dr. Fishman explores in her research. Previous research includes studying the development of new pharmaceutical drugs, conflicts of interest in academic medical research, and direct-to-consumer advertising of prescription drugs in the United States.
