Student Bioethics Forum will sponsor a national conference Feb. 23 and 24 on "The Ethics and Politics of Reproductive Technologies," featuring 13 experts from academia, clinical practice, industry and government. Lectures and panel discussions will be open to the public.
Topics will include an overview of the science and ethics of various reproductive technologies, the need for regulation, genetic selection in in-vitro fertilization, egg donation on college campuses, embryos and their disposition, and stem cell research.
Princeton students created the Bioethics Forum in 1995 to address the ethical questions created by advancing medical technology. Fifty Princeton students and more than 130 students from 45 other colleges were selected by application for this month's conference, and will participate in moderated breakout sessions in addition to the public lectures and discussions.
