The Department of Philosophy at Rutgers University-Newark will host the 2016 Rutgers-Merck Summer Bioethics Institute. The Institute introduces area high school students accepted for the program to the major ethical theories and the application of these theories to some of the most important issues in bioethics confronting contemporary society.

The topic for 2016 is titled Ethical Issues in the CRISPR/Cas9 Complex, which has provided researchers an invaluable tool to target and modify any genomic sequence. With this topic we continue our focus on modern neuroethics issues — an interdisciplinary area that combines biology, neuroscience, philosophy, linguistics, engineering and computer science.

Each daily session of the Institute consists of lectures (given by science and philosophy professors from Rutgers University and other universities), a critical thinking and writing workshop, and an interactive discussion of a case study or problem in bioethics. The students will prepare materials for presentations on this year's topic to be given at the end of the week at the Gala Banquet for students, parents and syblings.

The program is fully funded and without charge
for high school students who successfully compete
for acceptance in the one-week on-campus program.
For further information, please call 973-353-5498.
