Professor Vanessa Gruben has been awarded the James Kreppner Fellowship in Blood System Studies for her project “Organ Donation in Canada: Engaging with Stakeholders and Proposing Solutions to Current Legal and Ethical Challenges.”
Professor Gruben’s research focuses on the legal regulation of various aspects of assisted human reproduction, including contractual disputes over frozen embryos, privacy and access to information, gamete donor anonymity, the regulation and funding of assisted reproductive technologies, and the constitutionality of the Assisted Human Reproduction Act.
The Kreppner Fellowship is one of many funding programs established by Canadian Blood Services in support of blood-related medical, legal, and ethical research. The fellowship will provide Prof. Gruben with two years of funding: $75,000 in 2015 and $75,000 in 2016.
Congratulations to Prof. Gruben!
