As chair of the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues, President Amy Gutmann was widely quoted when the Commissions’ synthetic-biology report was issued.
Dear Members of our University Community:
Having just celebrated Thanksgiving, I find myself especially grateful for the privilege of working with all of you to advance Penn this year. As we rapidly approach the end of 2010, I thank every member of our community for making this a most remarkable year of achievement in our classrooms, laboratories, clinical practices, athletic fields, local community, and around the world.
