Joanna Radin received her PhD in History and Sociology of Science from the University of Pennsylvania. Her research examines the social and technical conditions of possibility for the systems of biomedicine and biotechnology that we live with today. She has particular interests in global histories of biology, ecology, medicine, technology, and anthropology since 1945; history and anthropology of life and death; biomedical technology and computing; feminist, indigenous, and queer STS; and science fiction.

She is the author of Life on Ice: A History of New Uses for Cold Blood (Chicago 2017), the first history of the low-temperature biobank and co-editor, with Emma Kowal of Cyropolitics: Frozen Life in a Melting World (MIT 2017), which considers the technics and ethics of freezing across the life and environmental sciences.

Between 2008 and 2019, the Center for the History of Medicine, through its Archives for Diversity and Inclusion (formerly the Archives for Women in Medicine), partnered with the Women in Medicine Legacy Foundation to offer an annual fellowship to support scholarship on the role of women in medicine and the biomedical sciences. The fellowship program, which required the use of collections held by the Center for the History of Medicine, is currently being reassessed.

Courses in History of Science, Medicine, and Public Health explore the interactions of medicine, public health, technology, science, and society from a global and historical perspective.

The editors, the editorial board and the contributors to Social History of Medicine are drawn from across the world, and from a range of professions and academic disciplines.
