Introduction

Benjamin HaleThis edition of Ogmius features an essay by Ben Hale, a faculty member in the Environmental Studies and Philosophy departments at the University of Colorado, Director of CUís Center for Values and Social Policy, and new affiliate of the Center for Science and Technology Policy Research.  In it Ben discusses the tricky ethical and policy issues surrounding a recent decision to allow scientists to create human-animal hybridized embryos for experimentation.  As Ben notes, the new policy will allow scientists to create cytoplasmic hybrid embryos by inserting human DNA into empty animal eggs.
