His most recent books are The Future of Bioethics (2009) and The Golden Calf: Economism and American Policy (2012). Before moving to UTMB in 2006 he spent 26 years in the Center for Ethics and Humanities in the Life Sciences and the Department of Family Practice at MSU. Much of his recent work addresses the interface between bioethics and health policy, especially ethical cost containment and medicine's relationship with the pharmaceutical industry.
