One of the first studies of an exciting new development in global biotechnology, this cutting edge text examines the extent of the transnational movements of tissues, stem cells, and expertise in the developing governance framework of India. Documenting the impact of local and global governance frames on the everyday conduct of research, this groundbreaking book traces the journey of '˜spare' human embryos in IVF clinics to public and private laboratories engaged in isolating stem cells for potential therapeutic application.
