Reproduction Reborn: How Science, Ethics, and Law Shape Mitochondrial Replacement Therapies

Author Diana Bowman

Reproduction Reborn guides readers through the history and science of mitochondrial replacement therapies and the various attempts to control them. Leading experts from medicine, genetics, ethics, law, and policy explore the influence of public debate on the evolving shape of these technologies and their subsequent regulation. They highlight case studies from both developed and developing countries across the globe, including recent legislation in Australia and China. They further identify the ethical, legal, and societal norms that need to be addressed by policymakers and communities as more and more people seek to gain access to these treatments.


Diana Bowman’s research analyzes and informs the development of smarter governance and regulation of innovation.

Her work in innovation is used to simultaneously enhance creativity, improve public health, and stimulate deliberation of the ethical, legal, and societal dimensions of emerging technologies. Bowman is associate dean for international engagement at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law, tenured associate professor and associate director for students at the School for the Future of Innovation in Society and co-director of the Center for Smart Cities and Regions.
