Harvard Announces Center for Bioethics and Technology
Better late than never...
Harvard Law School said it will create a new center specializing in cutting edge issues at the forefront of genetics, medicine and technology. The center will examine thorny legal questions including the debates over cloning, end-of-life care and physician assisted suicide. Also likely to receive significant attention: controversies over the privacy of patient data and third-party access to electronic medical records. Funding for the project was provided by a $10 million grant from the Carroll and Milton Petrie Foundation and Joseph H. Flom.
Harvard joins the list of other leading bioethics programs at schools like such as Stanford University, University of Pennsylvania, St. Louis University, the University of Houston and Seton Hall University. According to the NYTimes, "Drexel University in Philadelphia is focusing its new law school, slated to open next year, solely on technology and health issues."
It should be interesting to see how quickly and far they will go down the neuroethics road.
