Housed at the University of Minnesota, the mission of the Center for Bioethics is “to advance and disseminate knowledge concerning ethical issues in health care and the life sciences.” To accomplish this important mission, they are actively engaged in a number of interdisciplinary research projects and they also perform a number of community outreach activities. From their homepage, visitors can learn about some of their activities and recent announcements and events. After taking a brief look here, visitors will want to move along to the “Resource Center” section. Here, they will find short summaries on a variety of bioethics topics, detailed overviews with thorough bibliographies, as well as an excellent set of resources for teachers who wish to incorporate bioethics into the classroom. Finally, visitors should not miss their “Publications” area, which includes the complete archive of their own “Bioethics Examiner” and a number of legal overviews of bioethics issues.
