Description

"Science and ethics must go hand in hand. When they don't, science has done unconscionable things." —Dr. Paul Root Wolpe

In this Ethics Matter conversation, NASA's chief bioethicist Dr. Paul Root Wolpe will explore how new technologies and scientific breakthroughs challenge traditional ethical codes. Through a wide-ranging discussion examining the moral quandaries confronting space travel, bioengineering, nanotechnologies, and neuroscience, Dr. Wolpe will offer new insights into the surprising ways science and ethics intersect in the 21st century.

Ethics Matter is a monthly series of town hall events with notable policy and academic experts. The events will be taped and distributed for broadcast on television stations across the country. A networking reception will follow the taping.
