     stMedical Ethics in the 21 Century

This century heralds the greatest technology revolution in human history, greater

    than the industrial revolution. Biotechnology and its supporting technologies, such as

    information technology, will increase at an exponential rate. The possibilities of

    treating and preventing disease, and prolonging human life, are greater than ever

    before. But such progress comes at a cost. In the next decades, medical technology

    and treatment will become unaffordable unless access is controlled. It will become

    possible to change human nature fundamentally. If regenerative medicine realizes its

    promises or anti-aging treatments are developed humans could live well beyond the

    current maximum of 120 years. And advanced medical science like genetics and

    synthetic biology could be used to produce bioweapons capable of obliterating

    humanity.

    The need for medical ethics to address these profound issues is greater than ever

    before. How can philosophy and ethics contribute to the development and regulation

    of the progress of medicine and medical science? How can we teach and train

    medical students, doctors and scientists, and importantly the next generation of

    teachers and leaders to address these profound challenges? It is the aim of this

    conference to: (1) begin to identify the new 21

    st century challenges of medical ethics;

    (2) advance understanding of how philosophy and ethics can meet these challenges;

    (3) advance methods and training of students and young leaders of medical ethics.
