New developments in the biosciences — genetics and personalized medicine, biomedical informatics, cognitive sciences, neuroscience, and beyond — pose tremendous opportunities to improve health, as well as baffling challenges to both law and policy. In the attempt to understand, assess, and improve health conditions for local, national, and global communities, the Center for Law and Biomedical Sciences focuses on contributing solutions to these new problem sets. In particular, the Center is committed to improving the law as it relates to the rapidly evolving areas of health policy, the life sciences, biotechnology, bioethics, and the medical and technological arts, in order to help overcome the most critical health-care challenges of our times through applied, interdisciplinary research, innovative teaching and training, and public service and programming.
