Hello Conspiracy! I am truly delighted to be joining you as the newest Conspirator, and thank Eugene for the invitation and warm welcome. I’ll be blogging primarily about issues at the intersection of law and the biosciences, including developments in neuroscience, philosophy of biology, and bioethics and the law. Occasionally, I’ll be posting about seemingly random but truly amazing breakthroughs in the biosciences. For those of you who don’t know me, I’m a Professor of Law and Philosophy, and a Professor of Genome Sciences and Policy at Duke. I’m also one of the co-founders of a new peer-reviewed journal, The Journal of Law and the Biosciences (a collaborative effort between Duke University, Stanford University, Harvard University and Oxford University Press). As a member of the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues (our esteemed staff is now back at work), and the most recent recipient of the Paul M. Bator award from the Federalist Society, I’m also a bit of an enigma. You can also find me on Twitter @NitaFarahany where you’ll get daily morsels of science. And if you followed the Law and Biosciences Digest, please join me here from now on, instead. I look forward to engaging with my fellow co-conspirators, and with all of you, our excellent readers!
