Module overview

While scientific discovery may be ethically neutral, its application can raise profound ethical questions, in which there is often disagreement and misunderstanding in both the scientific community and the general public. It is therefore important to understand the basic science that lies behind the discoveries, to recognise the potential ethical dilemmas these produce, and to appreciate the reasons why people come to different ethical conclusions. This module provides opportunities to explore some bioethical issues and to develop skills in presenting these to both academic and lay audiences.
