    Ideas About Heredity, Genetics, and 'Medical Genetics' in Britain, 1900–1982.William Leeming - 2005 - Studies in History and Philosophy of Science Part C 36 (3):538-558.
    The aim of this paper is to understand how evolving ideas about heredity and genetics influenced new medical interests and practices and, eventually, the formation of ‘medical genetics’ as a medical specialism in Britain. I begin the paper by highlighting the social and institutional changes through which these ideas passed. I argue that, with time, there was a decisive convergence in thought that combined ideas about the familial aspects of heredity and the health needs of populations with an omnibus ‘genetic’ (...)

    Tracing the Shifting Sands of 'Medical Genetics': What's in a Name?William Leeming - 2010 - Studies in History and Philosophy of Science Part C 41 (1):50-60.
    This paper focuses on the structural development of institution-based interest in genetics in Anglo-North American medicine after 1930 concomitantly with an analysis of the changes through which ideas about heredity and the hereditary transmission of diseases in families have passed. It maintains that the unfolding relationship between medicine and genetics can best be understood against the background of the shift in emphasis in conceptualisations of recurring patterns of disease in families from ‘biological relatedness’ to ‘related to chromosomes and genes’.
