A new book, titled "Bioethics of Medical Advances and Genetic Manipulation: Legal Philosophical and Moral Perspectives" was recently launched. The book authored by Prof Marion Mutugi and Hon Justice Isaac Lenaola explores the biomedical technological advances and law with particular emphasis on the Kenyan situation.

Within the 21 chapters, the renowned geneticist from the University of Kabianga and distinguished judge of the supreme court of Kenya handle issues such as human artificial insemination, in vitro fertilization, surrogacy, transplantation, contraception, forced sterilization, cloning, sex selection, homosexuality, transgender, HIV, GMOs and forensics among others. While interrogating technological advances in medical practice and biomedical research, they note a legal lacuna in Kenya, predict increasing litigation and recommend urgent provision of laws and regulations.

The book which has raised considerable main and social media coverage and conversation has provided publicity for the University of Kabianga.
