Center for Health Law Policy & Bioethics

San Diego is a world leader in biotechnology and medical technology and at the forefront of many innovative scientific breakthroughs. As a community, we have come to realize that scientific and medical advancement, however promising, is often impeded and many innovations fail to fully realize their potential for improving human health because they raise challenging ethical, legal or policy issues. The Center for Health Law Policy & Bioethics has been established to provide an interdisciplinary and inter-institutional forum to address these issues and to support research, education, and policy reform.
