The Regulatory Challenge of Biotechnology

The Regulatory Challenge of Biotechnology

Human Genetics, Food and Patents

Biotechnology Regulation series

Edited by Han Somsen

This book will make a significant contribution to the debate surrounding the effective regulation of biotechnology. The contributing authors assess how regulatory regimes can accommodate the many different and often conflicting issues to which biotechnology is giving rise to (including a very tainted public image). The book’s ultimate aim is to explore ways of designing a regulatory regime that takes heed of these different demands whilst, at the same time, answering to the imperatives of effectiveness and efficiency.
