I study biobanks. I’m interested in studying the scientific practices that have led to the establishment of the most important biobanks in Mexico. I analyze how medical doctors and researchers dispute for the obtention of samples, for whether they will be kept in the institution's biobank or in private collections. One of the biobanks that I study is the Tumor Bank of the National Institute of Cancerology (INCan), located in a busy area in southern Mexico City known as the "Hospital Zone".
