Professor Yarborough received his Ph.D. in philosophy, with a special concentration in bioethics, from the University of Tennessee. He has been on the faculties of Auburn University, the University of Colorado Denver, and the University of California, Davis. While at Denver, he was Chair of the Philosophy Department and later the Director of the Center for Bioethics and Humanities at the university’s health sciences campus. As Center Director, he oversaw the development of various curricula, launched an arts and humanities in health care program, co-founded a pediatrics clinical bioethics program, and championed various community outreach activities.
Dr. Yarborough joined the faculty of the University of California Davis Bioethics Program in April 2010 as Dean’s Professor of Bioethics. His primary area of scholarship and research is ethical issues in biomedical research, with a special focus on matters related to trustworthiness in biomedical research. He directs the ethics-related teaching and consulting activities of the University’s Clinical and Translation Science Center. He also collaborates closely with many UC Davis stem cell research teams to address ethical issues that arise in the context of research with novel approaches to human disorders that lack effective treatments.
