Is There a Way Forward for Stem Cell Research?

Finding morally acceptable means to procure human stem cells will be the focus of a presentation by William B. Hurlbut, a physician and consulting professor at the Stanford University Medical Center’s Neuroscience Institute.

A member of the President’s Council on Bioethics, Hurlbut will address Science, Politics and Ethics: Is There a Way Forward for Stem Cell Research as part of the event, Ethics and Embryonic Stem Cell Research.

Hurlbut’s areas of interest include ethical issues associated with advancing biomedical technology, the biological basis of moral awareness and studies in the integration of theology and philosophy of biology. His work has been published in The New Atlantis: A Journal of Technology and Society as well as the Journal of Psychology and Theology.
