KAMSC Bio-ethics is designed to promote dialogue on the social and ethical implications of science and technology. Dialogue will examine such questions as: What are effects of science and technology on society and individuals? How can science and technology be managed? What is the role the individual in examining these decisions? Use of animals in research, informed consent for drug experimentation, “Can genes be patented?”, the impact of the Human Genome Project, physician-assisted dying, designing offspring, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, DNA databases for criminals, breast cancer susceptibility, Alzheimer’s Disease and many more topics will be discussed. The course is unique in that it will rely on the Internet to research topics and communicate with each other. Students who have access to appropriate technology will learn concepts in ethics to solve global problems through responsible use of science and technology.
