The University of Louisville Institute For Bioethics, Health Policy and Law

 

The Institute for Bioethics, Health Policy and Law was established in 2001 at the University of Louisville, School of Medicine. The purpose of the Institute is to conduct interdisciplinary research, teaching, and service at the highest levels in emerging areas of bioethics, health sciences, public health, law, and related fields.  Research activities in fields such as genetics, public health policy, health privacy and confidentiality, access to health care, and new medical technologies are carried out at the local, state, national, and international levels.  This combination of bioethics, health policy, and law provides a valuable and unique academic resource.

The Director of the Institute, Mark A. Rothstein, J.D., Herbert F. Boehl Chair of Law and Medicine, has appointments in the Department of Medicine and the Department of Family and Geriatric Medicine at the School of Medicine and in the Brandeis School of Law.  Professor Rothstein is a leading authority on the ethical, legal, and social implications of genetics, public health, and health policy.
