1 Local Cells, Global Science: The Rise of Embryonic Stem Cell Research in India

Aditya Bharadwaj and Peter Glasner

Routledge, London, UK, 2009, 0415396093 / 9780415396097, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
The book examines for the first time the extent of transnational movements of tissue, stem cells, and expertise, in the developing governance framework of India. It documents the impact of local and global governance frames on the everyday conduct of research, by tracing the journey of ‘spare?human embryos in IVF clinics to public and private laboratories engaged in isolating stem cells for potential therapeutic application. The empirical research is informed by a comparative analysis of the ethical, religious and social issues in North America and Europe, and compared with other tissue and organ donations already prevalent in India. The discussion also examines the gender dimension as a potential site for exploitation in the sourcing of embryonic and other biogenic materials, and suggests that a moral economy has developed in which the ethical values of the global North support and encourage the donation of abundant and ethically ‘neutral?embryos by the South.
