Dov Fox, J.D.
Professor of Law, University of San Diego School of Law
Dov knows the sticky issues of biotech like no one else. “My writing and teaching in law and bioethics tries to make progress on the controversies of our time and the challenges that lie ahead, from health care reform and translational medicine to brain imaging and gene editing,” he says. The Yale Law School grad publishes his opinions in a range of publications and actively influences policy through submissions of governmental agency comments and amicus briefs, frequent op-eds and speeches on biotech and bioethics. Dov also serves as director of USD’s Center for Health Law Policy and Bioethics, which he was active in founding with Stephen C. Ferruolo, the law school dean. “Central to the success of USD’s Center for Health Law Policy & Bioethics are partnerships among dozens of leading institutions of research, innovation, and practice,” he says.
