Summary Sentence: GID Sponsored Luncheon & Lecture featuring Jason Owen-Smith

Full Summary: A Lecture: "Funding Human Embryonic Stem Cell Research: Science and Scientists in Congress" discussion with Jason Owen-Smith (University of Michigan).

Jason Owen-Smith is a sociologist who examines how science, commerce, and the law cohere and conflict in contemporary societies and economies. Together with collaborators, Jason works on projects that examine the dynamics of high-technology industries, the commercialization of academic research, and the science & politics of human embryonic stem cell research. He seeks to understand how organizations, institutions, and networks can maintain the status quo while generating novelty through social transformations, scientific discoveries, and technological breakthroughs. Findings from this research have been published in outlets including the American Journal of Sociology, the American Sociological Review, Higher Education, Management Science, Nature Biotechnology, Organization Science, Research Policy, and Social Studies of Science.

Co-Sponsored by the Industry Studies Program of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
