In Biology, Engineering & Medicine

Location: Seattle, Washington
Conference Date:   November 13-14, 2021

Welcome from the Conference Chair

I am pleased to welcome you to the Tenth International Conference on Ethics in Biology, Engineering & Medicine. Our goal is to bring together biomedical engineers, scientists, clinicians, dentists, philosophers, lawyers, students and representatives from industry to discuss the ethical issues that face us as we make new advances in biology, engineering, dentistry and medicine, and as we develop new implants, devices, and drugs to improve medical and dental treatments and the quality of life of our patients. The papers to be presented represent a broad spectrum of topics reflecting the exciting, but sometimes controversial nature of many of the new advances in biology, engineering, dentistry and medicine.

This conference is sponsored by the University of Washington. It is co-sponsored by the University of Washington-Bothell, Seattle University, Florida International University, International Federation of Medical and Biological Engineering (IFMBE), The American College Dentists, Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES), the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (IFMBE), Sigma Xi and several other societies, institutions, and companies.

Many people contributed to the success of this conference. I would like to thank the keynote speakers, invited lecturers, the authors, session moderators, and the staff. The speakers are also encouraged to submit their papers for publication in Ethics in Biology, Engineering and Medicine: An International Journal. I am sure that you shall find this conference intellectually stimulating and a highly enjoyable experience.

Welcome to Seattle, Washington.
