Ira Carmen seeks a fusion of experimental biological research and political science research as he explores the important and controversial realm of human genomics.
Politics in the Laboratory takes a close look at the ethical, legal, social, constitutional, and political implications of modern biological research. It addresses both biopolicy issues and basic science—including cloning, embryonic stem cell investigations, and experimentation involving the human germline—from the perspective of a political scientist.
