His research focuses on the intersection between public policy and bioethics. Much of his work has examined the development of stem cell science, particularly research using human embryonic stem cells, and the translation of novel cell therapies.
The Interdisciplinary Health and Environment Leadership Development (IHE-LeaD) is a new program that connects scholars at GT to jointly work towards advancing the intersection of human and environmental health, and to discuss opportunities and challenges for translating scholarly work into actions with public impact and visibility. Our program runs a monthly seminar series that is open to the GT public. GT speakers will present their work on impact-driven research at the intersection of IHE. You can receive regular announcements about upcoming seminars via the IHE email list contact Gabi Steinbach.
