Professor King joined the SSHP faculty in 2007, after nearly 20 years on the faculty of the School of Medicine, UNC-Chapel Hill. She has written and taught extensively on issues related to informed consent in health care and research, medical decisions at the beginning and end of life, the development and use of experimental technologies, and international and cross-cultural questions in human subjects research. A revised edition of her book, Making Sense of Advance Directives, was published by Georgetown University Press in 1996. She is co-editor of The Social Medicine Reader (2nd ed., Duke University Press, 2005) and Beyond Regulations: Ethics in Human Subjects Research (UNC Press 1999). Her current scholarly foci include large- sample genetic research and biobanking, ethical issues in the design of clinical trials, and benefit and uncertainty in human subjects research. She has served on hospital ethics committees, IRBs, and DSMBs, and was a member of the Recombinant DNA Advisory Committee of NIH from 1998-2002. In 2002 she was elected a Fellow of the Hastings Center. Professor King directs WFU’s Research Ethics Consultation Program and serves on the School of Medicine’s SIRE Committee and the iDSMB. She has cross-appointments in the Department of Internal Medicine, the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine, and the Translational Science Institute. She also works with colleagues on both the Reynolda and Bowman Gray campuses to develop WFU’s Center for Bioethics, Health, and Society and the Master of Arts in Bioethics degree program.
