Janet Hope's PhD thesis was titled Open Source Biotechnology.
In 2002 Janet was awarded the APN Media Dialogica Award for Excellence in Scholarly Communication for an essay on complexity and risk in biotechnology. She has recently completed a series of papers on biotechnology regulation in New Zealand and is currently working full-time on her PhD at the Law Program, Research School of Social Sciences, under the supervision of Professor Peter Drahos (RegNet, ANU).
