From end-of-life decision making to genetically modified organisms, health care and biotechnology are raising crucial dilemmas for ethics.
At the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics, we work with hospitals, ethics committees, public health departments, and individual health care providers to develop practical approaches to hard problems. We deal with issues such as pandemics, health care for vulnerable patient populations, medically ineffective treatment, organ transplantation, and genetic testing. Out of our work, we have developed a rich set of articles, cases, and videos on all aspects of bioethics.
