Lori Andrews is an internationally-recognized expert on biotechnology law. Her path-breaking litigation about reproductive and genetic technologies and the disposition of frozen embryos caused the National Law Journal to list her as one of the "100 Most Influential Lawyers in America." Professor Andrews has also been involved in setting policies for genetic technologies. She has been an adviser on genetic and reproductive technology to Congress, the World Health Organization, the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences, and several foreign nations. She served as chair of the federal Working Group on the Ethical, Legal, and Social Implications of the Human Genome Project. Professor Andrews is the author of ten books, including, with Mark Rothstein and Maxwell Mehlman, Genetics: Ethics, Law and Policy (West Publishing, 2002,) and The Clone Age, published in 2000. In June 2006, her first novel, Sequence, will be published by St. Martin’s Press. Professor Andrews is also the author of more than 100 articles on genetics, alternative modes of reproduction, and biotechnology. Her many media appearances have included "Nightline" and "The Oprah Show."
