Ethics in the life sciences - DRZE expert reports
The series "Ethics in the life sciences – DRZE expert reports" is published by Dieter Sturma, Dirk Lanzerath and Bert Heinrichs. It offers in-depth reports on the state-of-the-art in ethics in the life sciences. Thus it is aimed at presenting current issues of life sciences in a scientifically profound way and to make them accessible to interdisciplinary and social discourse.
If required by the subject, the ethical comment will be completed by a medical, or scientific, as well as by a legal part. A scientific bibliography provides material for further examination.
The scientific department of the DRZE is responsible for content and edition of the contributions to this series, which are written by the staff of the scientific department of the DRZE, the Institute of Science and Ethics (IWE), as well as by external experts of the medical sciences, the life sciences, jurisprudence and ethics. The DRZE directorial and the advisory committees support the series in scientific issues.
