Jane Kotey, a second year PhD student, and recipient of the ‘Science in Society’ scholarship has been awarded a highly competitive application to attend a HDR forum in China. Jane is researching stem cell treatments in China, related to a larger ARC Discovery project focusing on stem cell tourism, led by Alan Petersen (http://artsonline.monash.edu.au/stem-cell-tourism-research-project/). The forum, Sustainable Health Futures, will be held at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, 20th-24th October, 2013. Jane, who is only one of two students chosen from Monash, will join Chinese graduate students and other Australian graduate students at this event, co-sponsored by the Group of Eight (Australia) and the Consortium of China 9 Research Universities (C9).
Alan Petersen has been awarded a writing fellowship at Brocher Foundation on Lake Geneva, in November 2014. This highly competitive fellowship will enable him to extend his research related to his ARC project on stem cell tourism, ‘The global market of stem cell treatments: a study of the regulatory role of international organizations’. During his fellowship he will write articles on the international regulatory implications of stem cell tourism, and interview members of agencies who have some regulatory remit in the field of medical tourism, such as World Health Organization, the World Trade Organization and the World Medical Organization.
