Daniel S. Goldberg received his B.A. with honors in philosophy from Wesleyan University, and his J.D. magna cum laude from the University of Houston Law Center. He is currently an associate professor at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus Center for Bioethics and Humanities. His current research agenda in law, policy, and bioethics focuses on the social determinants of health, public health policy and chronic illness, health inequities and  stigma. Other interests include neuroethics, disability, and conflicts of interest. He also maintains a research agenda in the history of medicine, focusing on the history of pain without lesion, the history of medical imaging, and the history of objectivity.

His dissertation used the lenses of the medical humanities to address the root causes of the widespread undertreatment of pain in the U.S. He counts Montaigne as a personal hero, and can be found blogging away at Medical Humanities Blog (http://www.medhumanities.org).
