"At last we have a comprehensive review of the crucially important yet enduringly controversial field of stem cell research. Ranging across topics as diverse as philosophy of science, ancient mythology, modern biology, the meaning of language, and the intricacies of FDA requirements for the compassionate use of investigational biologic drugs, Hyun weaves together a story of humanity's latest effort to define, heal, and even regenerate itself." - R. Alta Charo, University of Wisconsin Law School
"Finally we have a very useful volume that takes us well beyond the ethical issues surrounding embryonic stem cells to a set of important ethical concerns that arise as soon as we mobilize clinical trials using stem cells from any source." - Harold T. Shapiro, Princeton University
"If you've been looking for a book on emerging ethical, social, and scientific dimensions of stem cell research, look no further. Insoo Hyun has brought us a fine volume that clearly outlines why ethics matters to biology's most promising field. Hyun pulls off a neat trick, showing how bioethics can successfully grapple with the future of regenerative medicine without compromising its focus on the here and now. I highly recommend it." - Christopher Thomas Scott, Stanford Center for Biomedical Ethics
"As the caravan of stem cell science has raced ahead at breakneck pace over the past decade, Insoo Hyun has been riding shotgun, facilitating some of our field's most critical deliberations, and challenging us to set a socially responsible course for this transformative research. In this wonderfully accessible book for both expert and layperson, Hyun navigates the dynamic relationship between philosophical and research ethics to dissect stem cell research with the philosopher's scalpel, applying the incisive edge of pure reason in perfect balance with the practical imperatives that this new science offers our society. Hyun speaks with an authoritative voice on science, medicine, policy, and philosophical realms in which answers are harder to come by than in the laboratory." - George Q. Daley, Director, Stem Cell Transplantation Program, Children's Hospital and Dana Farber Cancer Institute, and Professor, Harvard Medical School
Bioethics and the Future of Stem Cell Research provides a sophisticated yet accessible account of emerging trends in stem cell research and their accompanying ethical issues. Insoo Hyun encourages readers to look beyond the embryo debate to consider tough ethical issues involving animal research, clinical trials, and stem cell tourism. This book is based on the author's extensive experiences in international stem cell policy formation, and is an indispensible resource for anyone interested in the future of stem cell research and the challenges surrounding research ethics.
