The OEC site is designed to engage and serve those who promote learning and advance the understanding of responsible research and practice in engineering and science. It recognizes the individuals and organizations that have provided guidance, reviewed submissions, contributed resources for the OEC (or related activities of the Center for Engineering Ethics and Society), and/or contributed to the goals of the site. Posted profiles can inform those interested in careers in ethics education in engineering and science and may suggest opportunities for collaboration and partnership. The OEC Community Feed announces events, developments, and new members and resources posted to the site. The Projects page provides information about current activities of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine that address ethics issues in science and engineering.

  • (Re)Engineering Biology: The Emerging Engineering Paradigm in Biomedical Engineering, Systems Biology, and Synthetic Biology

    PostedWednesday, November 25, 2015 AT 9:54 AM


    15 - 16 April 2016 - Center for Philosophy of Science, 817 Cathedral of Learning, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA USA Engineering models, methods, concepts, technologies and engineers themselves are playing an increasingly prominent role in biological investigation. The new engineering inspired fields such as integrative systems biology, biomedical engineering, and synthetic biology appear to have more in common with engineering approaches than with traditional biological ones. Researchers in these fields typically come from engineering and applied mathematical disciplines or are biomedical engineers trained to understand and build with biological materials. The result has given rise to a complex interplay of different conceptual and methodological frameworks, and interdisciplinary interactions, that have yet to be fully explored by philosophers. A fundamental contribution of the engineering paradigm in modern biology is, arguably, the provision of strategies and tools for
