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 a co-editor of The Social Medicine Reader (2nd ed., Duke University Press, 2005; 3rd ed. forthcoming 2018), Beyond Regulations: Ethics in Human Subjects Research (UNC Press 1999), and Bioethics, Public Moral Argument, and Social Responsibility (Routledge 2012), as well as numerous scholarly articles in bioethics and medical journals. Her current scholarly foci include large- sample genetic research and biobanking, ethical issues in the design of clinical trials, first-in-human clinical trials, novel biotechnologies (including gene editing, gene drives, and regenerative medicine technologies), 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, and in 2015 she was appointed to the DHHS Secretary's Advisory Committee on Human Research Protections, which advises the Office for Human Research Protections on ethical and regulatory issues arising in research with human subjects. Professor King directs WFU’s Research Ethics Consultation Program and serves on the School of Medicine’s iDSMB, IBC, and Clinical Ethics Committee. She has a cross-appointment in the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine, and co-developed and teaches in a comprehensive ethics and professionalism course for MSI&II students in the School of Medicine. She also helped develop and co-directs the WFU Center for Bioethics, Health, and Society and the Graduate Program in Bioethics, both of which bring colleagues from the Reynolda and Bowman Gray campuses together to provide important educational and scholarly opportunities for all students, faculty, and staff.
