On Sept. 30, he published an article in the Boston Review on the Myriad decision and its broad implications for property issues concerning the body. Oct. 4, he published a Commentary in the Scientific American about the Nobel Prize winner “who fathered in vitro fertilization.” Last week, MacArthur Genius Grant recipient Ramón Gutiérrez said Obasogie’s work on how the blind perceive race was “most interesting research that [he’s] come across lately.” That same research was spotlighted on GPB News and KPCC.
