Ethics is not a specialty: It is a conversation. As science and technology advance, so do ethical questions surrounding those developments.
From the moral treatment of embryos and donor autonomy to the moral imperative to develop treatments that may correct or prevent medical conditions, stem cell research and development include topics ripe for scholarly discussion and debate. By exploring these issues both scientifically and ethically in a public forum, participants gained a deeper understanding of new technologies and their larger societal impact.
