The Consortium sponsors multiple events each year to foster dialogue about important issues at the intersection of science and society. We bring top experts in bioethics, public policy, health care, and the life sciences to campus to engage with our faculty, students, staff, and community colleagues.
Our lectures bring eminent thinkers from around the nation to address emerging topics that cross disciplinary boundaries.
