Purdue Bioethics Seminar Series

How do biotechnologies challenge our social boundarires?
The Purdue Bioethics Seminar Series seeks to continue to press the issue of
ethics in science and technology here at Purdue. We intend to build
opportunities for engagement between philosophy, policy, and science at a
campus-wide level and to raise awareness of the ethical implications of
biotechnological development for our environment both local and global. Hosting scholars from across the region brings new perspectives to the Purdue community on these issues. Each years' seminar series focuses on two central themes in
bioethics. For the 2007-2008 series, these themes are the ethical issues of
climate change and those of issues in medical technologies.
