On Wednesday July 27, 2016 the EBPI’s Health, Ethics and Policy Lab, led by Prof. Effy Vayena, will debut its first Summer Seminar with a talk by Sheila Jasanoff, Ph.D., J.D., and Pforzheimer Professor of Science and Technology Studies (STS) at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, USA.
Prof. Jasanoff is a pioneer in the field of STS, which examines the role of
science and technology in law, politics, and policies in modern democracies.
Following remarks by Prof. Jasanoff, three international scholars will further discuss how scientific breakthroughs complicate basic understanding of the relationships between scientific and social progress.
Discussants include: Prof. Calvin Ho (National University of Singapore), Prof. Bruno Strasser (University of Geneva) and Prof. John Tasioulas (King’s College London).
