Aaron D. Levine is an Associate Professor in the School of Public Policy in the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts at Georgia Tech. His research aims to understand the impact of public policy on biomedical research with a more specific focus on the interface between bioethics and public policy. Specifically, he studies the impact of ethical controversy on scientific research, with a particular emphasis on emerging biomedical technologies. His recent work has focused on both stem cell policy and the fertility industry. Aaron is the author of Cloning: A Beginner’s Guide, an introduction to the science of cloning and embryonic stem cells and the ethical and policy debates this science inspires.
Aaron completed his PhD in Public Affairs at the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton University. He also holds a MPhil from the University of Cambridge where, as a Churchill Scholar, he developed computer algorithms to help analyze the human genome sequence and a B.S. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where, as a Morehead Scholar, he studied biology and computer science.
