Bioethics is the study of ethical issues arising out of advances in the life sciences and medicine. The NYU Center for Bioethics is hosting a workshop with thirteen significant figures in Bioethics who will pair up to address and offer contrasting views on five current issues in Bioethics.

Readers of Ethics Etc might be interested in Newsweek’s cover story in December entitled “Planet Reboot: Fighting Climate Change With Geoengineering,” in which they interviewed me about whether human engineering may be less risky than geoengineering as a means of mitigating the effects of climate change.

This two-day symposium, presented by the Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society and the Pozen Family Center for Human Rights, will bring interdisciplinary scholars together to ask first whether there is a human right to health care. Symposium participants will also explore how to define a right to health care and then who has the obligation to provide and protect this right.
