The Bioethics branch of the Social Trends Institute seeks to bring together moral philosophers, medical doctors, and scientists to hold serious academic discussions about the ever-present ethical dimension inherent in all areas of science and biotechnology. Rather than focusing on normative guidelines for specific types of cases, the Bioethics branch’s research is aimed at sketching diverse perspectives of emerging controversies in the areas of science and philosophy.

At STI, we support the publication of the research we sponsor. We are proud to present the following publications:
