Aaron D. Levine is an Assistant Professor in the
School of Public Policy at Georgia Tech. His research focuses 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 Ph.D. in Public Affairs at the Woodrow Wilson School
at Princeton University. He also holds a M.Phil. 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.
In May 2012, Aaron received a 5-year NSF CAREER award ("Ethically Contentious Science and the Graduate School Experience").
This project, funded through NSF's Faculty Early Career Development Program, seeks to understand how working in an ethically contentious field, such as stem cell research or nanotechnology, affects
students' graduate education and the development of their scientific careers.
