Current Medical Ethical Issues
In this lecture, Professor Kahn will examine the state of health care and biomedical research in the U.S. and around the globe, through the lens of ethics. The lecture will start with some historical context and examples from bioethics, and draw some parallels from the past for the current state of our public discussions on a range of controversial bioethics issues.
Topics will include current medical ethical issues including the practices of research involving patients as well as healthy subjects, the debates about the beginning and end of life, reproductive technologies, transplantation, and the latest cutting edge research in genetics and genomics.
