Suffering and Bioethics
  • Monday, Feb. 9, 2015 - 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Long before it cured disease, medicine aimed to relieve suffering. Despite that precedence, the relief of suffering often takes a back seat in today's biomedical research and treatment. Modern bioethics, too, has been slow to come to terms with suffering. Attention to ethical quandaries has sometimes displaced attention to the experience of patients. This seminar will discuss the place of suffering in contemporary bioethics. Ronald M. Green is Professor for the Study of Ethics and Human Values in the Department of Religion at Dartmouth College and a member of the department of Community and Family Medicine at Dartmouth's Geisel School of Medicine. From 1992 to 2011 he directed Dartmouth's Ethics Institute. In 1994 he served on the National Institute's of Health's Human Embryo Research Panel and in 1996-97 he served as founding director of the Institute's Office of Genome Ethics. The author of nine books and editor of three, he has published over one hundred and sixty articles on philosophical and applied ethics. His 2007 book Babies by Design (Yale) has topped the Amazon.com listing of books on genetic engineering. In 2005, Professor Green was named a Guggenheim Fellow. Nathan J. Palpant is Acting Instructor in the Department of Pathology at the University of Washington, Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine. His scientific research focuses on developmental fate choices and therapeutic applications of lateral plate mesoderm derivatives. Dr. Palpant's work in bioethics has focused on the translational implications of nuclease-mediated genetic engineering and human embryonic stem cells. He is co-editor of Human Dignity and Bioethics: from Worldviews to the Public Square (Routledge, Annals of Bioethics, 2013).
