Astier Mesghenna Almedom Henry R. Luce Professor in Science and Humanitarianism. "The Luce program is coordinated by the Director of the Institute for Global Leadership, Sherman Teichman.

"Professor Almedom came to the Henry R. Luce chair in Science and Humanitarianism from an interdisciplinary training, research, and teaching background in Human Sciences, Biological Anthropology (Oxford), and Medical Anthropology (London). Unlike most of her colleagues in the Biology department, her research subjects are people in their natural environments, and her study participants are actively encouraged to engage in the analysis of data they provide through on-site group discussions and designated feed-back sessions held in the field. Graduate students with research interests in bio-social and socio-cultural enquiry into public health pertaining to both emergency humanitarian assistance and long-term development policy and practice are welcome.“ [1]
