The Center for Bioethics provides an inter-disciplinary, inter-professional forum to advance both public understanding and scholarly work on contemporary issues in Bioethics. The Center explores these issues by providing education, promoting research, and offering service to diverse communities.
The Columbia University Center for Bioethics is located in northern Manhattan, part of an urban neighborhood that is ethnically and economically diverse. This setting uniquely positions the Center for cross-cultural work with distinct communities, and collaboration with national and international academic partners. The Center serves as a link between the uptown (medical center) and downtown campuses.
