Bernard Siegel :
"Are we prepared to face the unique challenges of stem cell research as it moves from the laboratory to medical treatments? Thanks to the remarkable work of Russell Korobkin, we now have a clear and thorough road map to follow. Whether you are a policy-maker, attorney, biotech executive, patient, or concerned citizen, you will be well served to read Stem Cell Century."—Bernard Siegel, Executive Director, Genetics Policy Institute

Ian Wilmut :
"Stem Cell Century provides a very clear analysis of the policy issues around cloning and stem cells in biomedicine, on the basis of a sound scientific understanding of the underlying biology.”—Ian Wilmut, Director, Edinburgh University Centre for Regenerative Medicine and creator of "Dolly" the lamb, the world''s first cloned mammal

Christopher Thomas Scott :
"Stem Cell Century is the first book to clearly explain the profound effects of law and policy on what may be the biggest scientific advance of our time. Korobkin vividly demonstrates how a formerly quiet corner of biology has exploded into new realms of intellectual property, commerce and international affairs. If you want to know what lies ahead for stem cell research, buy this book."—Christopher Thomas Scott, Director, Stanford University Program on Stem Cells and Society, and author of Stem Cell Now: A brief introduction to the coming medical revolution

Book Description
The explosion of interest in stem cell research raises a raft of controversial policy questions. When should human embryos be used to create stem cells? Should cloning be outlawed? Should egg and tissue donors be paid? Should we allow scientists to patent stem cells? Is the government entitled to a portion of the revenue from stem cell technology created with public funds? How should the regulators and courts balance the competing goals of access to revolutionary treatments and protection of the public from unknown risks?
Russell Korobkin, with contributions from Stephen R. Munzer, provides the first thorough discussion and analysis of these and other unsettled questions of law, policy, and ethics that surround stem cell science. His clear and concise description of complex problems coupled with logical and well-balanced conclusions makes this volume essential reading for all Americans, general readers and experts alike, interested in the promise of stem cell research and the future of regenerative medicine.
