Abstract

The burgeoning opportunities of the knowledge economy of biomedicine are matched by the governance challenges it poses to states in the pursuit of national advantage. The future markets are uncertain, the process of knowledge production from basic science to therapeutic product complex, and the possibility of failure ever present. Drawing on theories of the state, innovation and governance, this article explores the governance demands of knowledge production in biomedicine and the roles of state, regional levels of governance and private governance in the policy response. Applying the analytical framework derived from this discussion to the US case, the multi-dimensional governance of stem cell science in the arenas of science, society and the market is examined in an exploration of the USA's innovation capacity in this field.
