In late 2005 the U of M Libraries began exploring a project around stem cell ethics with Jeff Kahn at the center for bioethics. By early 2006 planning had coalesced around a project called EthicShare for which we would seek Mellon funding. The site http://www.ethicshare.org was established. When I left the university in 2007 I also lost touch with EthicShare. In late 2008 I was asked to consider consulting with the project to review a redesign of the web site.
