Scholar

Maureen Condic, Ph.D.

Associate Scholar

Dr. Condic is an Associate Professor of Neurobiology at the University of Utah School of Medicine, with an adjunct appointment in the Department of Pediatrics. She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Chicago and her doctorate from the University of California at Berkeley. Her research focuses on the role of stem cells in development and regeneration and has been nationally recognized by both the Basil O’Connor and the McKnight awards. In 2015, she was appointed to the Pontificia Accademia Pro Vita, an international scientific advisory body to the Vatican. In 2018, she was appointed by the President of the United States to the National Science Board, which oversees the National Science Foundation and advises both the President and Congress on scientific issues. 

Dr. Condic participates in graduate and medical education and has taught Human Embryology at the University of Utah School of Medicine for 20 years. She has a strong commitment to public education and science literacy, authoring over 150 articles on science, ethics, and science policy. She has presented over 250 lectures/interviews on her own research, science policy, and research ethics in 10 countries (Brazil, Canada, Italy, Lithuania, Malaysia, Philippines, Poland, Russia, Spain and the United Kingdom), 37 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. She has contributed to Amicus Curiae briefs and/or provided expert scientific testimony in four countries (Canada, Costa Rica, Ireland and the United Kingdom), and in legal matters before the United States Supreme Court, the United States Congress, the National Institutes of Health, 15 States, and the District of Columbia. 

In 2018, Dr. Condic co-authored a book entitled Human Embryos, Human Beings that explores the nature of the human embryo from scientific and philosophic perspectives and that recently won the international Expanded Reason competition. Her second book, Untangling Twinning (2020), considers the biologic and philosophic issues raised by human monozygotic twinning. 

In addition to her research and teaching, Dr. Condic was appointed as the first Ombudsman for the University of Utah in 2014, and she assists all members of the university community (faculty, staff, students and trainees) with informal conflict resolution.
