Last week the KIE, in collaboration with the Embassy of the Czech Republic, held a symposium titled Mendel’s Peas and Today’s Genes: Healthcare, Ethics, and Genetics. The event was part of the Mutual Inspirations Festival, which celebrates both a famous Czech and the transatlantic ties between Czech and American cultures.
Undergraduate students from all across the university submitted scholarship, representing nearly twenty different majors at the College, SFS, and NHS.
This year, directly following the Bioethics Research Showcase reception, a cast of Georgetown students, alumni, and friends will perform a stage reading of a new play by Second City’s Katie Watson.
The KIE is proud to announce Georgetown’s third-annual Bioethics Research Showcase, which will feature undergraduate research work in a campus-wide juried event in April 2015.
With nearly double the submissions as last year’s inaugural competition, the second Showcase event featured many student winners in a variety of categories.
The Bioethics Research Showcase at Georgetown, now in its second year, is open for submissions! Meet last year’s grand champion, Ali Carter (C’15), and learn about her winning submission.
Student work featured in the 2015 Bioethics Research Showcase, interviews with student winners about their work, and an array of event photos and more are featured in this new gallery.
Winners in creative and analytic categories were selected by a jury of bioethics and disciplinary experts, and honored at the Showcase’s two evening events on April 15 & 16.
