Join the Institute for Informatics (I2) for the Annual Scientific Symposium — back in-person at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center, for the first time since 2019!

Featuring Bohigian Lectureship in Biomedical Informatics speaker, Mary F.E. Ebeling, PhD. Her research examines the intersections of gender, race, and digital technologies, data privacy, health marketing and medical capitalism. 

In her most recent book, "Afterlives of Data: Life and Debt Under Capitalist Surveillance" (University of California Press 2022), data and debt subjectivities in healthcare are examined through the cross-sector uses of clinical and other private health information by data brokers for marketing and other non-health related purposes. "Afterlives" reveals the industrial and legislative processes that Big Tech and information companies use to create data commodities.
