The Hastings Center

The Hastings Center addresses fundamental ethical and social issues in health care, science, and technology. Through our scholars’ writing and speaking, and through the work of the many other people who participate in our projects or submit articles to our publications, we shape ideas that influence key opinion leaders, including health policy-makers, regulators, lawyers, legislators, and judges.
