BIOS 5620 - Bioethics

Bioethics seeks to help students reflect intelligently upon and discuss the nature of modern biology as a science and its impact upon our social and governmental discourse. This occurs through classroom and web based discussions of methods and techniques relevant to applications of Biological Sciences and Biomedical Ethics. We focus on issues that rarely are discussed for fear of offending someone. This includes, but is not limited to, euthanasia, abortion, intelligent design, organ transplants, stem cells, and gene therapy. Students learn to appreciate the complexity of bioethical issues  and the enormity of the responsibility they will carry while providing an unbiased view to the public.
