scientist with backgrounds in bioengineering and human physiology,
Emilie Clemmens has held a long-standing interest in bioethics and
science policy. During her scientific training, she opted to take
courses in health law and published an article on cloning embryos for
research in the Indiana Health Law Review. After receiving her Ph.D. in
bioengineering from the University of Washington in 2003, Emilie
co-founded the Forum on Science, Ethics, & Policy at the UW.
As a 2004 Christine Mirzayan Science & Technology Policy
Fellow at The National Academies in Washington, D.C., she enjoyed
discovering how science policy is crafted at the federal level and how
our nationís scientific experts contribute to the process. Emilie
brings her perspectives as a woman, mother, scientist, and ethicist to
the critically important initiatives at the Womenís Bioethics Project.
A native of Kentucky and devoted Kentucky Wildcats fan, Emilie now
lives in Redmond with her husband John and daughter Audrey.
