About this book

This book puts the ethics, policy and politics of stem cells into context in a way that helps readers understand why past and current issues have developed the way they have and what the implications are for their work going forward. It also addresses emerging issues as the field progresses towards clinical and industrial uses.

While there is a superabundance of material on the ethics of embryo use and questions of embryonic "personhood," there is little that covers what practicing scientists and managers need to know in order to plan and execute responsible research. Furthermore, researchers funded by the NIH are required to have ethics training as a condition of the grant. As such, this book is an essential resource to all of these pre-professional students whether they plan to move into industry, government or academia.

About the authors

Linda F. Hogle is Professor of Medical Social Sciences in the School of Medicine & Public Health at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Fellow at the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery.  Her research includes analyses of social, ethical, and legal issues in emerging cell-based and biomedical engineering technologies, as well as concepts of risk in innovative science as understood by governance bodies. She has served as an advisor to several international research consortia focusing on stem cell and regenerative medicine.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“The book will appeal to ethicists and college professors who are interested in research ethics and/or ethical, legal, and social implications (ELSI) projects. The book also will be useful to a variety of students interested in law and bioethics, or who are planning to conduct RMR. … this book provides many interesting insights into RMR, and those in the intended audience likely will find it to be useful, relevant, and thought provoking.” (Joseph T. Norris, Doody’s Book Reviews, September, 2014)
