Brown Appointed Adjunct in U of U Medical Ethics Division

Effective November 2, 2009, Teneille Brown, an Assistant Professor of Law at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law, became an adjunct professor in the Division of Medical Ethics and Humanities, Department of Internal Medicine.

Prior to joining the Quinney College faculty this year, Brown held three simultaneous fellowships at Stanford University, as a post-doctoral scholar at the Stanford Center for Biomedical Ethics where she researched behavioral genetics, privacy rights, and the law; as a research fellow in the MacArthur Foundation Law & Neuroscience Project; and as a fellow at Stanford Law School in the Center for Law and Biosciences.

Brown recently explained to the Medical Ethics in Utah newsletter that as much as she enjoys teaching law students, she also looks forward to teaching students from other disciplines: “Being able to guest lecture in Division of Medical Ethics and Humanities courses is right up my alley. I love being able to switch from teaching torts to law students to teaching it to say, genetic counselors. In some ways, the tort lessons hit much closer to home when you’re talking to potential providers,” she said.
