Each year the Department of Bioethics invites one or more visiting scholars to join our ranks. We strive to select visiting scholars with different experiences, disciplinary backgrounds, and perspectives; our goal is to engage colleagues who will challenge us to approach problems in bioethics from novel directions. Although Visiting Scholars have ample time to focus on their own research, they are substantially engaged with the activities and members of the department. We encourage Visiting Scholars to fully integrate themselves into the Department's intellectual life, ideally by finding opportunities to collaborate with faculty or fellows on research projects of shared interest.
