    (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

    Building Inclusive Ethical Cultures in STEM: A Virtual, Practice-Based Workshop

    A Virtual Workshop hosted by the Center for the Study of Ethics in the Professions, Illinois Institute of Technology, and the University of Texas San-Antonio. 

    This workshop seeks to share best practices to effectively engage students and faculty working in research labs and lab-based classrooms in building inclusive ethical cultures. This training moves beyond traditional research ethics training into frameworks and approaches to strengthen the ethical culture in research labs. 

    The two-day workshop will feature a series of short presentations and panel discussions that showcase best practices and approaches to embedding educational interventions in research labs and lab-based courses. These short presentations and panel discussions will be followed by a workshop where effective frameworks for implementing recommendations made by the panelists are discussed, best practices and potential hurdles are shared, and participants are guided through the development of personalized plans for implementing some of these educational interventions in their labs, courses or departments. 


    We invite presentations from instructors, principal investigators, faculty, and administrators working at two and four-year educational institutions in the STEM fields. Please submit an abstract of up to 500 words. Abstracts for 10-15 minute presentations are due by November 20, 2020. Please send your abstracts and questions about the event to csep@iit.edu. ;

    For more information visit: http://ethics.iit.edu/EthicalCulturesWorkshop

    This workshop will be held virtually and there will be no charge for participation.

    NAE to Transition the Management of the Online Ethics Center to University of Virginia

    The National Academy of Engineering will transition the Online Ethics Center for Engineering and Science (OEC) to the University of Virginia effective October 1, 2020.

    Since 2007 the NAE has managed the OEC and expanded its resources and reach as well as the active engagement of the community. The OEC has provided engineers, scientists, faculty, and students with resources for understanding and addressing ethically significant issues that arise in scientific and engineering practice and from the developments of science and engineering. It has also served those who promote learning and advance understanding of responsible research and practice in engineering and science.

    At the University of Virginia, with the current funding from the National Science Foundation the OEC will continue to host the vast library of online ethics resources and to serve the community.

    With ongoing program changes, NAE will not be supporting OEC effective September 30, 2020. We hope you will remain an active member of the OEC community through this transition. If you decide to opt out, please contact us at OnlineEthics@nae.edu by September 21, 2020.
