The Center for Medical Ethics and Health Policy researches and influences policy on today’s most pressing ethical issues. We are one of the biggest and fastest growing ethics centers in the country, and our goal is to build the infrastructure so that we can respond immediately to help government and health care providers decide how to do the right thing.
The center focuses on conducting cutting-edge multidisciplinary research on perennial and emerging ethical issues arising in clinical practice and in biomedical research in a changing healthcare environment. Our research informs our teaching, clinical practice and contributions to the development of health and science policy at the local, national and international levels.
Our staff is dedicated to creating a shared, sustainable, intellectual environment in which all stakeholders can critically reflect on and respond to ethical challenges in healthcare and biomedical research.
