- Deep Thoughts for the New Year: Ethical Quandaries of Medical Advances:

The turning of the calendar spurs us to reflection. We all want the best that modern medicine has to offer, but progress always comes at a cost. Thus this month's topic: the ethical quandaries of medical advances.

At the University of Notre Dame, staffers at the John J. Reilly Center for Science, Technology and Values grapple with the idea that knowledge isn't always wisdom, so how should society accommodate both?

The Center explores the ethical and policy issues that arise when science and technology intersect. Its goal is to promote the advancement of science and technology for the common good. The Center recently announced its inaugural list of emerging ethical dilemmas in science and technology for 2013. Of the 11 issues on its list, six are directly related to medicine and patient care.

For the complete list, (see newsletter for link), where you can also vote for your top concerns about science and ethics, and learn about things that concern other folks.
