Omenn Bioethics Lectures

Gilbert S. Omenn, M.D. ’61 and Martha A. Darling *70 Lecture in Ethics and Policy in Bioengineering

In Fall 2022, we held the inaugural Omenn Bioethics lecture, given by Professor Jodi Halpern at Berkeley. The Omenn lecture is organized by PBI together with the Council on Science and Technology, and the University Center for Human Values. The hour-long lecture and reception are the highlight of a 2-day visit, which brings together Princeton students and faculty from across campus, including those in PBI, CST, UCHV, SPIA, History, Philosophy, and the Faith & Work Initiative. The Omenn lecture is catalyzing this important conversation across campus, and is helping engage PBI researchers with the broader societal implications of their work.
