Students will be expected to research and analyze various topics in biotechnology and effectively draft memoranda on the technological aspects, as well as the ethical, legal and social impacts. All applicants must possess strong research and writing abilities. We are considering graduate students in appropriate fields working toward a master of science, Ph.D., or J.D.
