Event Details

Egg donation, organ transplants, surrogate motherhood. When we exchange human body parts (or the use of those body parts), what is the nature of those relationships? Are we exchanging gifts, engaging in commerce…or something else? Kim Krawiec, the Kathrine Robinson Everett Professor of Law at Duke University, will discuss how we—and the law—think about these sorts of exchanges.

Periodic Tables is an informal science gathering during which invited speakers share interesting, relevant science to the general public in an engaging and interactive way. See this page for information about the program.
