Education and Outreach

Working with our partners at Indiana University, the Center and its faculty give leadership and provide opportunities for students, community members, and IU faculty and staff to gain practical and theoretical knowledge of bioethics.

For the Community

The IUCB's faculty investigators are dedicated to making ethics a part of Indiana's discourse on science, medicine, and technology. The IUCB accomplishes this goal by giving lectures, hosting experts in bioethics, and participating in other events, forums, and activities open to the IU and Indianapolis communities.

Lectures and Visiting Experts

IUCB faculty lecture on various topics throughout the year as well as host domestic and international experts in bioethics. For when these talks are to be held, keep up to date with our "Upcoming Events" section and the IU School of Medicine events calendar
