About UMBC's Bioethics Student Association

What is Bioethics?

Here's the Wikipedia definition:
Bioethics is the philosophical study of the ethical controversies brought about by advances in biology and medicine. Bioethicists are concerned with the ethical questions that arise in the relationships among life sciences, biotechnology, medicine, politics, law, philosophy, and theology.

In short, the field of Bioethics deals with the ethical implications of biological research and its applications.
