Ethics and the Life Sciences

Life Sciences Café panel event

From stem cells to CRISPR to evolution to conservation and biodiversity, these and the many other applications, concepts and disciplines of biology are vital parts of modern society with complex impacts and ethical implications.  The American Association for Advance of Science’s 2011 report Vision and Change in Undergraduate Biology Education: A Call to Action recognizes this by championing the “ability to understand the relationship between science and society” as a core competency of biology education.  How do SOLS faculty and the School’s Life Science Ethics Program work towards biology education that takes up this call and expand it into our research enterprise as well?   Come and join the panelists in discussion.
