Jennifer Keelan is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Public Health Sciences at the University of Toronto. After completing her PhD at the University of Toronto’s Institute for History and Philosophy of Science and Technology in 2004, she was awarded a SSHRC postdoctoral fellowship (2004-06) held at the Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine, University College of London, and in Program on Science, Technology, and Society at The Kennedy School of Government, at Harvard University. Her research interests include public health policy, civic and social epistemology, the Public’s understanding of science, and the history of medicine. She is completing a monograph that compares the resistance movements and legal challenges to compulsory immunization in the U.S., Canada and the UK. Current policy research projects include an examination of the need for, and possible design of, a no-fault medical insurance program to address vaccine injuries that arise through compliance with government-recommended immunization policies.
