Hastings & Yale Form Bioethics Program

The Hastings Center and Yale University recently formed a joint ethics-and-health-policy program. The Yale-Hastings Program in Ethics and Health Policy will allow Yale faculty and Hastings scholars to share resources, host visiting scholars, and jointly sponsor student programs that deepen the understanding of bioethical issues.
The Hastings Center bills itself as the world’s first bioethics research institute. Its research program looks at the effects of advances in medicine and the life sciences. Yale’s Interdisciplinary Bioethics Center explores the ethical and social implications of biomedical and technological research, with a focus on religion and the environment.
The new program will hold its first public event this spring. — Kimberly Roots

    I werote my new book, "Who Owns You? The Corporate Gold Rush to Patent Your Genes" (Wiley-Blackwell 2009) while serving a year as a Fellow at the Yale Bioethics Center. http://www.amazon.com/Who-Owns-You-Corporate-Philosophy/dp/1405187301/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1237965158&sr=1-1

    It's a great center and the collaboration will be a boon to both.
