Professor Ikemoto Speaks on Global Bio-Consumerism

Professor Lisa Ikemoto participated in the Tarrytown Meeting sponsored by the Center for Genetics and Society in Tarrytown, New York on July 25.  She spoke on "Global Bio-Consumerism" as part of a panel on "When Biotech Travels."  The Tarrytown Meeting is an annual event in which advocates, scholars and others gather to consider what can be done to ensure that human biotechnologies support rather than undermine social justice, human rights, ecological integrity and the common good.

Lisa Ikemoto teaches bioethics and health law courses at the UC Davis School of Law.  She has written extensively on genetic and reproductive technology, the regulation of fertility and pregnancy, and race and gender disparities in health care.  Her current work examines emerging issues in regenerative medicine, including stem cell research, and the human tissues market.
