About us

The Wake Forest University Center for Bioethics, Health, and Society is a collaborative intellectual space for addressing ethical, social, and policy issues of importance for biotechnology, health care, biomedical research, and public health. The Center brings together faculty, students, and staff from all disciplines across all WFU campuses and schools, and engages academic and public stakeholders locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally to advance research, education, and communication about bioethics issues.

Bioethics is both a theoretical enterprise and a practical competence. It is fundamentally multidisciplinary, addressing universal questions within the social and cultural contexts in which they arise. The Center for Bioethics, Health and Society encompasses all aspects of bioethics research and scholarship, from theory to policy to practice, and all relevant disciplines, including philosophy and religion, the life sciences, the social sciences, health economics, medical humanities and arts, and the professions (law, medicine, business, and divinity).
