Alberto Cambrosio

Professor Cambrosio's area of expertise lies at the crossroads of medical sociology and the sociology of science and technology. His work focuses on the "material culture" of biomedical practices, and in particular on the study of the application of modern biological techniques to the diagnosis and the therapy of cancer, the comparative (North-America ? Europe) development of cancer clinical trials, and the role of visual imagery in the development of immunology.

Professor Cambrosio's most recent project (supported by grants from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, the Fonds québécois de recherche sur la société et la culture and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research) examines how modern medicine has come to grips with the multiple and ubiquitous cultural, social and practical differences and variations with which it is increasingly confronted. He is especially concerned with the creation of institutions and instruments to manage these differences and generate consensus, and thus with the social and historical dynamics of biomedical regulation, objectification and standardization.
