The Kennedy Institute of Ethics is proud to present the Undergraduate Bioethics Research Showcase at Georgetown, a juried exhibition of student work in a variety of categories and disciplines, reflecting the intersection of the many topics in the ethics of health, the environment, and emerging technologies that comprise the field of bioethics.
Bookended by two keynote events — a dynamic conversation with NPR science reporter Joe Palca on the April 15th, and a moving cross-cultural exploration of transgender identity by actor-playwright Mashuq Deen on April 16th — the showcase will highlight creative and analytical student work in bioethics. Prizes will be awarded for outstanding submissions.
