Calling all bioethicists who’d like to know more neuroscience!
Penn is once again offering Neuroscience Boot Camp, a ten-day intensive program for academics and professionals in bioethics, law and other fields who want to be able to work knowledgeably with neuroscience. Last summer’s Boot Camp was a great success, with lectures, panel discussions, lab visits and breakout groups, and we are planning to make this one even better!
Here is what some of last year’s campers had to say:
“Neuroscience boot camp was fabulous. I got a basic overview of the field from first-rate researchers who also happen to be superb teachers. They were as open to answering basic questions about the science as they were eager to engage the larger philosophical and legal questions that brought many of us to camp. Truth be told, it wasn?t just edifying. Spending time with a bunch of curious professionals who wanted to learn some basics about a field other than their own was just really, really fun.” — Erik Parens, Ph.D., Senior Research Scholar, The Hastings Center
“Martha’s leadership and lectures have been absolutely fantastic, and
the other lectures, field trips, and lab demonstrations have been
equally wonderful. I cannot imagine a better way to improve my
understanding of neuroscience and am eager to bring my new knowledge to
bear on my scholarship in law and the medical humanities.” — Stacey Tovino, JD, Ph, Director, Health Law and Policy Center, Drake University Law School
