This talk will discuss emerging landscapes of bioengineering (agricultural biotech, genetic engineering, precision medicine, synthetic biology, biofuels, etc.), and of science and technology policies (or lack thereof), with an eye to social determinants of health and health equity. It will explore both the public health stakes of various fields of bioengineering and the bioeconomy, as well as the stakeholders most represented in policy-making processes, in California and beyond. Finally, it will inquire into possibilities for transforming these landscapes - to foster more inclusive, sustainable and health equity-oriented forms of innovation and economic prosperity for all.
