Biografie (woord)

Donna Dickenson is Emeritus Professor of Medical Ethics and Humanities at Birkbeck College, University of London. In 2006, she became the first woman to receive the International Spinoza Lens Award for her contribution on public debate in ethics.


Advance praise: 'With her customary perspicacity and analytic rigour, Dickenson interrogates the innumerable ways that women's bodies are made profitable by and for the commercial life sciences. She combines an enormous depth of knowledge about the intricacies of property law with an impressive breadth of familiarity with the most current developments in fertility treatments, stem cell research, genomics and tissue banking. She makes us think about the biomedical commons, and ways we might pursue a common good approach to biomedical research.' Catherine Waldby, Australian National University
