Sharon Bassan is a legal scholar with expertise in (bio)ethics, health policy, innovation, and information technology law and ethics. She is currently the Jaharis Faculty Fellow in Health Law and Intellectual Property at the DePaul University College of Law, after two years as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University Center for Human Values (UCHV), Princeton University. 

Her research addresses emerging technologies that lack a clear regulating authority or a cohesive regulatory framework, which raise ethical challenges and often, commercial interests. Sharon's recent and forthcoming work explores the regulation of reproductive practices and information technologies such as data mining, Big Data, and intelligent systems. Her book "Regulating Cross-Border Surrogacy" is forthcoming at Cambridge University Press.
