Life and Career

McGee was raised by adoptive parents on the faculty of Baylor University in Waco, Texas. He earned a masters degree and Ph.D. in philosophy from Vanderbilt University.

From 1995–2005, McGee was an assistant professor and associate director for education at the University of Pennsylvania Center for Bioethics, where he held joint appointments in philosophy, history & sociology of science, cellular and molecular engineering, and was a Fellow of the Leonard Davis Institute for Health Economics. In 1999 he founded and became the first editor-in-chief of The American Journal of Bioethics, the highest impact journal in the categories of "History & Philosophy of Science", "Ethics", "Social Issues", and "Biomedical Social Issues" (according to the Journal Citation Reports).

In 2005, he moved to Union University in Albany, NY, as the John Balint, M.D. Professor of Medical Ethics and became director of the Alden March Bioethics Institute at Albany Medical College which had been founded in 1993 as the Center for Medical Ethics Education and Research by Balint. Three years later, after a legal case arising from the University's attempts to demote him as director and remove his endowed chair, he left the university.

He was appointed to the John B. Francis Endowed Chair in Bioethics at the Center for Practical Bioethics in Kansas City, succeeding John Lantos, inaugural holder of the Chair.

On February 13, 2012, it was announced that McGee had accepted a position as President of the Ethics Research Division at Celltex Therapeutics Corporation, a Houston, Texas stem cell bank. He came under fire for this move over a perception that there might be a conflict of interest between his editorial duties and his new position, and he subsequently resigned from Celltex on February 28, 2012.

McGee is also a member of the Honorary International Editorial Advisory Board of the Mens Sana Monographs.

Famous quotes containing the words career and/or life:

    Each of the professions means a prejudice. The necessity for a career forces every one to take sides. We live in the age of the overworked, and the under-educated; the age in which people are so industrious that they become absolutely stupid.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

    The intellectual life may be kept clean and healthful, if man will live the life of nature, and not import into his mind difficulties which are none of his.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
