Is it permissible to create human clones? Would you really want to live forever? Is brain death the death of a human being?

These controversial questions will be explored through stories in Manga in this bioethics course. Bioethics is an interdisciplinary field of study that looks into ethical, legal, and social implications of life sciences and health care.

This course will help you understand key ethical issues surrounding crucial problems that literally impact your life from birth to death.

Topics include:

  • Living Donor Organ Transplantation
  • Cloning Technology
  • ES Cells and iPS Cells
  • Lifespan and Eternal Life
  • Brain Death and Organ Transplants

You will also learn about ethical arguments and regulations in Japan and other countries concerning life sciences and healthcare through Lectures and the Discussion forum. Our hope is, through this course, you will better understand and formulate your own opinions on these important issues.

DISCLAIMER: The intention of this course is to present different arguments and perspectives on a number of different topics on bioethics. In other words this course DOES NOT aim to instill in its audience any particular perspective, religious or otherwise, on each topic.

This course is Part 2 of a two-part series, but can be taken as a stand-alone course. You do not need to have completed Part 1. No previous knowledge of bioethics is needed.
