MBB Undergrad Part of Bio Curriculum Challenge

May 16, 2022

Kelly Long (MB&B), Emme Magliato (Global Health Scholar), and Gemma Yoo (MCDB) presented their work from the new “Eugenics and Its Afterlives” class at the Yale & Slavery Research Project Student Symposium “From Slavery to Eugenics: Confronting Legacies of Racism in Medicine and Across the Disciplines.” The students’ goal was to include the history of eugenics as part of the introductory biology curriculum. 

MB&B is the only biology major at Yale to require students to take a course on social identity and science, which examines the history of marginalized groups and the greater implications of eugenics.
