The Hastings Center is a non-profit research organization dedicated to "address[ing] fundamental ethical issues in the areas of health, health care, life sciences research, and the environment as they affect individuals, communities, and societies." Established in 1969, the Hastings Center is currently headed by Mildred Z. Solomon, a bioethics scholar and professor at Harvard University's Medical School. Here readers will find the Center's official website that offers a glimpse into current and past research projects via the Our Issues and Who We Are sections. Visitors interested in keeping abreast of bioethics research can also use this site to learn more about ongoing research projects, such as an investigation of ethics and policy relating to prenatal testing, an exploration of the health of football players, and an examination of how gene editing in humans might affect "human flourishing." Additionally, the Publications and Resources section features a scholar-authored blog of contemporary bioethics issues along with links to journal articles, reports, and books published by the Hastings Center or Hastings Center scholars.
