A/Professor Megan Munsie PhD is the Deputy Director for the Centre for Stem Cell Systems at The University of Melbourne and the Head of the Education, Ethics, Law & Community Awareness Unit at Stem Cells Australia

- The occurrence of commercial exploitation 

- Risks, cost and ethics of stem cell therapy
