The series hosts a variety of lecturers, from clinicians to medical researchers to philosophers, offering a broad range of relevant bioethical topics. The event may be attended live in person on MSU’s campus in East Lansing, or live via webinar, where listeners can stream the audio while watching a slide presentation. A question and answer session will follow each lecture, with the option for the online audience to type in questions which will be read aloud. All lectures will be recorded and made available on our website, bioethics.msu.edu, shortly after the event.
