Professor Keith Wailoo is among the 18 fellows elected to the Hastings Center, a nonpartisan bioethics research institution. These fellows are chosen based on their scholarship and public understanding of complex ethical issues in health, health care, life sciences research, and the environment.

Wailoo is the Henry Putnam University Professor of History and Public Affairs at Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. His work focuses on a range of topics including drugs and drug policy; race, science, and health in the United States; and history, health policy, and medical affairs.

He is the author of a number of books including, most recently, “Pain: A Political History,” which was published by Johns Hopkins University Press. In 2007, he was elected to the National Academy of Medicine.

The Hastings Center is a nonpartisan, nonprofit bioethics research institution founded in 1969, addressing fundamental ethical and social issues in health care, science, and technology.
