Mauro Turrini

Sociologist of science and medicine at the Institute of Public Goods and Policies (IPP) of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) in Madrid, and associated researcher at CERMES3 in Paris, I explore the political epistemologies and ontologies of medical innovations, by combining and experiment with different, and basically qualitative, methods. I did fieldworks in the domains of genetics, diagnostic, contraception and reproductive medicine. My current research interests include susceptibility genetic tests, the pill crisis, and big data and medicine between personalized medicine and public health care.
