HUSL Faculty Help Science Museum Explore Legal Implications of Race

The Science Museum of Minnesota is tackling the challenging topic of race in a first-of-its-kind national exhibit to deal with the science, history and everyday experience of race and racism in the United States. Hamline Law Professor Dr. Jonathan Kahn, whose scholarly research and writing related to the legal and ethical implications of how racial categories are produced and disseminated in the course of drug development, is featured in the exhibit. He is quoted in a question-and-answer format display on the legal and ethical ramifications of Bi-Dil, the first medication ever approved by the FDA to be targeted to a specific racial group.
