Looking for ways to bring discussions of #racism in your #science classes? Some ideas I use in class & in talks e.g. genome-wide sequencing studies, databases are skewed. Must be accounted for when extrapolating these data (e.g. personalized medicine) nature.com/news/genomics-… 1/n
Especially when those findings are used to develop decision #algorithms otherwise #racism gets "baked in" #ArtificialIntelligence is not neutral. Healthcare outcomes reflect societal racism nature.com/articles/d4158…

Which means that structural #racism can kill #cancer patients "Black patients with breast cancer and other malignancies face historical inequities that are ingrained but not inevitable" acsjournals.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.10…

If this is actual true, which I find dubious, #IHaveQuestions because we have been down this road before & it is always patients who lose

Let's start with some basic facts:

1. The US Govt (read WE, the US taxpayer) has given Pharma companies like #SorrentoTherapuetics funding & tax breaks to create #COVID19 treatments/vaccines

2. It's WE, the people, who've donated said antibodies for use in developing treatments/vaccines & the US Govt (Again, WE, the people) has been directly involved in specimen collection

Sería muy interesante armar el maratón de #MCU alrededor de #Avengers, pero acomodando todas las escenas de todas las películas en una sola línea temporal. No incluyo las series por que sería sumamente largo y complicado.

Abro #hilo y me explico.
#AvengersElHilo
Actualmente hay dos formas (bueno hay un chingo) en que puedes ver todas las películas del Universo Cinematográfico de Marvel:
1.- En el orden cronológico de lanzamiento, es decir comenzar con #IronMan (2008), hasta llegar a #AvengersEndgame (2019).
2.- Viéndolas en orden cronológico de tiempo de los eventos, es decir, comenzar con lo que sucedió primero con #CaptainAmerica: The First Avenger y terminando con #AvengersEndgame. Esto sin contar los "flashbacks" con los que comienzan algunas como #GuardiansOfTheGalaxy
