The NIH Department of Bioethics is one of the nation’s preeminent centers for bioethics scholarship and training. Since the Department’s establishment in 1996, its members have consistently produced high-impact conceptual and empirical research published in leading journals, and have served as leaders in this evolving field. We are committed to interdisciplinary and inter-institutional collaboration, with a focus on bringing medical, legal, philosophical, and scientific disciplines to bear on contemporary questions in bioethics.
The Department of Bioethics is part of the NIH Clinical Center, and combines a rigorous academic environment with a commitment to clinical bioethics service at the NIH. We offer a fellowship program for promising predoctoral and postdoctoral scholars, as well as a wide variety of conferences and courses for clinicians and clinical researchers. We also provide a Bioethics Consultation Service that offers assistance on clinical issues as well as questions that arise in the course of research involving human subjects.
