In this first lecture of the Becoming A Physician speaker series, three expert panelists look at the controversial topic of embryonic stem cell research. The panelists address the issue with reference to the biological, theological, moral, and political dimension of the case. In light of the recent California proposition of stem cell research, this program was organized to provide insight onto this complex and topical debate in bioethics.
Three panelists included:
- William O. McClure, Ph.D., Professor of Biological Sciences, Professor of Neurology, Director, Program in Psychobiology, University of Southern California
- Vicki Michel, M.A., J.D., Professor of Law, Loyola University; Consultant in Bioethics and Law
