Ethical Challenges in Human Brain Organoid Research

Presented by the Oregon Bioethics and Humanities Colloquium of OHSU, speakers will explore questions including: What does it mean to be human? Do we control our medical technology? Or does our technology control us? Is American health care just? If so, for whom? In discussion, Kate MacDuffie, PhD, MA from the Univeristy of Washington Autism Center and Treuman Katz Center for Pediatric Bioethics at Seattle Children’s Hospital leads a conversation about the ethical challenges in human brain organoid research.
