I found that my 2008 policy paper on medical technology transfer for sustainable development (which compares ophthalmology literature on avoidable blindness in Nigeria and Nepal) has been listed on the African Technology Transfer and Development Network (TDTNet) as part of a bibliography of resources on technology transfer.

Below I have posted the letter that I wrote and forwarded to my U.S. representative and senators.
Logan primarily uses this blog to: reflect on policy and professionalization issues in STS (e.g. research funding, discipline formation, skill building, job-hunting, policy applications of STS theory) and to disseminate her own scholarship.
