It's my pleasure to announce that Michelle N. Meyer is stepping into the faculty lounge to sit with us for a spell. Michelle is a Petrie-Flom Fellow at Harvard Law School, where she taught a course last spring on "Regulating the Production of Knowledge: The Law and Ethics of Research." She was previously a fellow at Johns Hopkins in Bioethics and Health Policy and before that clerked for Judge Stanley Marcus of the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.
Michelle is a graduate of Harvard Law School, where she was an editor of the Harvard Law Review. Before law school she earned a Ph.D. in religious studies from the University of Virginia and she is a summa cum laude graduate of Dartmouth College. Her many publications include "The Plaintiff as Person: Cause Lawyering, Human Subject Research, and the Secret Agent Problem," in the Harvard Law Review in 2006. "The Plaintiff as Person" was recommended reading in The Green Bag's 2006 list of exemplary legal writing.
Michelle's works in progress, which I hope she'll be talking some about with us here, include "Regulating the Production of Knowledge: The Heterogeneity Problem in Human Subjects Research and Its Private Ordering Solution," "The Mythical Right to Procreate," and "Human Subjects Research from a Behavioral Regulatory Perspective."
