In the world of science and medicine, moral and ethical considerations abound. What does it mean to be “human?” When it comes to the promise of therapies and cures, do the ends justify the means? What limiting principles should guide research and public policy? In the pursuit of human flourishing, how do we decide what is acceptable collateral damage? Why should society approach issues such as three-parent embryos, human cloning, assisted reproductive technology, gene editing, embryonic stem cell research, and many others, with caution and restraint?
Join us for an illuminating and informative discussion with leading philosophical, scientific, and public policy experts as we explore the importance of bioethics in science, culture, and the law.
