UCLA School of Law Research Paper No. 06-05
Human embryonic stem cell research raises a raft of legal issues that cut across substantive areas of law. This paper categorizes and analyzes issues concerning the regulation of research, patent protection for stem cell innovations, informed consent of research subjects, and property rights in human tissue. Each part attempts to identify the most important and salient legal issues for researchers and policy makers, describe the current state of the law, and critically analyze that law.
