 My work focuses on biobanking, genomics, and the anthropology of value. My fieldwork is ongoing within a cancer biobank based in southeast Texas. The goal of this work is to explore the ways in which meanings and values associated with cancer tissue samples are constructed, destroyed, changed, and reorganized as the samples change hands among many professionals as they move along a trajectory from cancer patients, through the biobanking process, to researchers.
