Yale School of Medicine Assistant Professor Jennifer Miller has become a member of the World Economic Forum’s Global Future Council on Biotechnology. As a member, she joins 20 leading experts from academia, government, international organizations, business and civil society. The aim of the council is to challenge assumptions and introduce ideas to reshape global systems for the benefit of humanity and the planet.

She also focuses on the ethics of collecting, analyzing and selling data about people. Miller is founder of Bioethics International, a nonprofit dedicated to better understanding and operationalizing bioethics and patient-focused healthcare innovation.
