Jason Robert, Ph.D., Lincoln Chair in Ethics and Director, Lincoln Center for Applied Ethics; Dean's Distinguished Professor, School of Life Sciences, ASU

A bioethicist and philosopher of biology, Jason Robert's research and teaching is animated by the question of what is good science – that is, science that is both efficacious and ethical. His approach is to work against reductionist tendencies in biological and biomedical science and ethics, to surface and explore the profound complexity of our biological and moral systems.

This is a Spirit of the Senses salon. Spirit of the Senses is an arts, science and cultural salon group based in Phoenix. In the quest to better understand where we are and who we are, Spirit of the Senses has developed discussions and performances spanning the arts, music, the sciences, history, literature, law, medicine and more. Members, Biodesign employees and their guests are welcome.

Host: Julie Kurth, Marketing and Communications.
