In this article we examine embryonic stem cell research and explore the current regulatory framework associated with this research in Australia, with particular reference to the Andrews Report. We consider these issues in the contexts of: The increasing public scrutiny and accountability of biomedical research; the use of human embryos in research; the lack of uniform national regulation for embryo research in this country; and the general public debate about reproductive cloning. In these contexts, the current ART regulatory system is also considered.
