From the miraculous inventions to the life-saving technologies and discoveries, science has changed the way we live our lives today. Have you ever paused to think about some of the side-effects that science has had on human civilization? The atomic bomb, the horrific experiments conducted during the Holocaust, the environmental wreckage caused by oil and resource extractions – how do we regulate science so that these detrimental consequences are minimized? For the first ever Science Week Conference, the topic for discussion is Ethics in Science. We have invited several panelists from different fields of science, each bringing you their own perspective on the current intertwining relationship between ethics and science.

There are no costs associated with this conference, which is taking place on Friday, Feb 7th from 5:00-8:00pm in CCIS 1-430. Dinner and refreshments will be provided for all attendees. Space is limited, so RSVP now!
