Isabel Karpin is a Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Law, University of Sydney. She specialises in feminist legal theory, health law, law and culture, and constitutional law.
Her distinctive contribution to legal research and scholarship is in the area of law that can broadly be described as regulating bodies. This includes laws governing reproductive technologies, biotechnology and genetics as well as the legal responses to developments in genetic technologies and the challenges these pose to legal understandings of normality, disability, individuality, and family.
She is currently involved in several major research projects in the areas of reproductive technology, disability and emergent genetic technologies.
