Lee M. Silver received his Ph.D. at Harvard University. He is an
internationally renowned molecular biologist and expert on biomedical ethics,
legal issues, and the societal challenges posed by advances in biotechnology.
Silver is the author of many publications, including Mouse Genetics:
Concepts and Practice, and Remaking Eden: Cloning and Beyond in a Brave
New World, which has been published in 14 languages since its initial
publication in 1997. The primary focus of that book is the ethical concerns and
legal issues that arise from the technological advances that were, until
recently, found only in science fiction. These issues form the basis for
Silver's new Woodrow Wilson School undergraduate course "Human Genetics,
Reproduction, and Public Policy." Silver is the co-editor of the official
journal of the International Mammalian Genome Society. He is a fellow of the
American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and was a member of
the New Jersey Bioethics Commission Task Force, formed to recommend reproductive
policy positions for the New Jersey State Legislature. He has testified on
reproductive and genetic technologies before U. S. Congressional and New York
State Senate committees.
