Mark D. Robinson

Resident Fellow


Mark Dennis Robinson is an ISP Resident Fellow at Yale Law School. Robinson joins Yale from Harvard Law School, where here was a student fellow at The Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics, as well as Creighton University, where he is an assistant professor of bioethics. 

Robinson's research offers insights relevant to bioethics, global technology policy, and the implications of emerging advances in science, technology, and medicine. His recent book, The Market in Mind How Financialization Is Shaping Neuroscience, Translational Medicine, and Innovation in Biotechnology (MIT Press) was the first to trace the unforeseen impacts of economic shifts upon the work of translational neuroscientists and its ethical implications for global innovation and the world's patients. 

Robinson's latest project synthesizes significant data about human moral failure and makes a brand new argument about the nature of human morality. Using this data, Robinson proposes a new way to design solutions for global moral problems.

Robinson holds a degree in Bioethics from Harvard Medical School, graduate degrees from the University of Chicago, and a Ph.D. and an M.A. from Princeton University, under a Presidential Fellowship.
