National Institutes of Health Clinical Center


Since its establishment in 1996, the Department of Bioethics has revitalized existing bioethics activities at the National Institutes of Health and launched a series of new educational and research initiatives.

The Department's research efforts are divided into three distinct areas: health policy, human subjects research, and genetics.

Included among our offerings are a fellowship program for promising scholars with either undergraduate or doctoral-level degrees, and a variety of conferences and courses.
