Centering the margins in experimental sciences

Health, science and technology are important for economic and social development. Experimental sciences depend upon research funding, but the criteria for research funding often reinforces the center. In experimental sciences the margins contain research that may seem to lack rationale, but they also contain novel ideas that challenge currently accepted paradigms and research into neglected diseases, including diseases that affect poor and marginalized populations. This presentation will explore the factors that reinforce the center in experimental sciences and how initiatives that have been developed to support marginalized research can redefine the center.
