Noah Collins

Anthropology Graduate Student

Noah’s (White Mountain Apache Tribe/Cherokee Nation) research interests broadly concern Indigenous health disparities. He has worked extensively in genomics, bioethics, and community based participatory research in multiple domestic and international Indigenous peoples groups. His most recent research has been to identify globally rare gene variants for use in creating therapeutics to treat areas of unmet medical need. Noah’s research Indigenizes western processes to empower Indigenous people to establish systems that uphold their individual belief systems. At Princeton Noah wants to explore the natures of engagement and sovereignty in global Indigenous communities beginning their interactions with biomedical research.
