Research Support

We would like acknowledge with gratitude the generous financial support of the North Carolina Biotechnology Center, which provided a grant that supported the majority of the costs associated with creating this project, and to the anonymous reviewers of this grant, who provided suggestions which we believe greatly improved the final version of this project. We are also grateful for the financial support of the Dean of the Faculty of the Arts and Social Sciences at Carleton University; the Office of the College of the Dean of the Arts and Sciences at the University of Washington; the Josiah Charles Trent Memorial Foundation, Inc.; and the Center for Genome Ethics, Law and Policy (GELP) of Duke University.

We are very grateful to James Boyle, N. Katherine Hayles, Natalie Jeremijenko, Eduardo Kac, Lisa Lynch, Marta de Menezes, W.J.T. Mitchell, Maynard Olsen, Arti Rai, Elizabeth Rutledge, Patrick Terry, and Eugene Thacker for granting us interviews for inclusion in Biofutures.

We also extend an especial thanks to the members of our Advisory Board: James Boyle, Amy Laura Hall, Gerald Nepom, Barbara McGrath, and Elizabeth Rutledge (and to Mignon Keaton, who served as an unofficial member of the board).
