The new Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues, first announced over four months ago, is finally getting its members. HHS published the official announcement of the commission's establishment on March 31, and on April 7 ten Members were announced by the White House (the two co-chairs were announced previously; the Executive Order also provides for the possibility of one more member.)
The new commission has its website up.
No meetings or topics have as yet been set, and most are still trying to learn about the backgrounds and positions of the members of the new commission. Stand by.
