Comparative Regulatory Approaches to Biotechnology

This project includes comparative regulatory structures in advanced industrial states, i.e. EU, US, and Japan and the implication of differing regulatory practices for trade rules; regional and multilateral attempts at regulation of biotech products; and the relationship between multilateral trade and environmental organizations and implications for biotech regulatory policy. A seminar series is being organized in conjunction with faculty in the Law School, CESP, the Bio-medical Ethics Centre and with colleagues from Berkeley and UCSF to examine these issues in the context of both agricultural and medical biotechnology.
