The Life Science Ethics Initiatives cultivates existing formal and informal ethics education and research initiatives in the school so that they grow into a visible and integrated program. Through the activities, the students, faculty, and staff engage the ethical dimensions of research and innovation in the life sciences. Ethics activities in the School of Life Sciences contribute to and benefit from university-wide ethics initiatives directed by Jason Robert through the Lincoln Center for Applied Ethics.
