Summer McGee, PhD

11 minutes 51 seconds

Some early advice for synthetic biology from the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues. Essentially, don’t clamp down too hard on the research, and anticipate some risk from synthetic biologists who are not covered by the regulations.

Dr. Summer McGee discusses the issue with Lorell LaBoube in this edition of the Bioethics Channel. Dr. McGee is the director of graduate studies at the Center for Practical Bioethics and executive editor of the American Journal of Bioethics. She’s also written a book about presidential bioethics commissions.
