Research


Faculty from many MU departments and programs are engaged in crucial research on the ethics, history, policy, economics, law, sociology, and media coverage concerning the life sciences, as well as on the social manifestations of the human status as an organism. The Life Sciences & Society Program seeks to enhance the value and scope of such research on campus by making connections across disciplines.

While many of the publications in LSSP fields are interdisciplinary, our list of recent publications below is organized by the home department of the authors.
