POLICY REPORT 56

In February 2012, the Baker Institute Science and Technology Policy Program and the Qatar Foundation hosted a workshop in Doha on international stem cell science and policy. The four-day conference focused on policy, ethics and research, while also exploring ways to bridge the gap between science and policy in an international context.

In Baker Institute Policy Report 56, science and technology policy fellow Kirstin R.W. Matthews, Ph.D., and her co-authors present highlights from the conference. The paper looks ahead to the future of stem cell research, including potential challenges to the field, and offers recommendations for sustaining international meetings that encompass broad issues in this cutting-edge science.
