Monday, November 30, 2020, 11:30am to 1:00pm




This online nanocourse series is part of the curriculum offered by the Scientific Citizenship Initiative (SCI) at Harvard Medical School. SCI aims to make science more socially responsive and responsible by examining the social impact of scientific research and emerging technology, exposing students to the multiple roles and institutions that make up the innovation ecosystem, and teaching practical skills, such as how to communicate across disciplines and perspectives.

  1. online course series consists of three nanocourses that each center on an emerging biotechnology. Every nanocourse combines short pre-recorded lectures, ethical simulations, applied communication activities, and group discussions. Students will be exposed to the complexity of ethical decision-making and to the many stakeholders that shape biotechnology design and regulation.
