Medico-legal educator

Sonia is an accomplished academic who has specialised in health and law for nearly two decades. She particularly focuses on biotechnology law, including the ethical and legal issues surrounding assisted reproduction, surrogacy, cloning and human genome research. Recognising the differences across jurisdictions in health law, both nationally and internationally, Sonia used her grant to develop an online resource that provides clear information to the community. Check out her Health Law Central website.

“These areas of health have significant public interest, yet there is confusion concerning the law and policy across jurisdictions. This resource provides a central place where the community can access important information.”
