Medina Examines Stem Cell Policy

July 2, 2008

Tags: Alumni, 2008

Johanne Medina, ’08, wrote an important article as a third-year student that has been published in the latest edition of the Pacific McGeorge Global Business & Development Law Journal.

Her comment, “Is Stem Cell Research a One-Way Ticket to the Island of Dr Moreau? Singapore and the United States’ Differing Paths,” 21 Pac. McGeorge Global Bus. & Dev. L.J. 125 (2008), critiques current American scientific research policy.

Medina argues that “ U.S. legislation should follow Singapore’s lead with both its laws on stem cell research and its policies that foster the growth of the biotechnology industry in its country.” She concludes that the “ U.S. government must expand stem cell research funding or face being technologically and economically disadvantaged.”

Medina, a graduate of San Francisco’s Lowell High School who received her J.D. from Pacific McGeorge in May, holds a B.S. in Cell and Molecular Biology from San Francisco State University.
