Bioethics Institute

Developments in medicine and the life sciences have challenged our understanding of human nature, the goals of medicine, and the limits of our technological powers over human beings. The field of bioethics addresses the ethical dimensions of such developments through analysis of issues such as medical experimentation, assisted reproductive technologies, stem cell research and cloning, genetics, euthanasia and assisted suicide.

The Bioethics Institute is committed to offering a challenging graduate curriculum, expanding research initiatives for interdisciplinary collaboration of faculty across various Departments and Colleges, and renewing our involvement in the larger community through public lectures, symposia, and a critical contribution to the most controversial ethical issues of the day.
