Date & Time

Location Name
Congress A (4th Fl)

In the "Star Trek: The Next Generation" episode "Ethics", Worf has a devastating injury that leaves him paralyzed, but a visiting physician who has been researching therapy for his injury might be able to cure him. 

In this interactive session, attendees will watch this episode and participate in a discussion of the ethical issues raised; informed consent, research in desperate patients, justifying first-in-human use, and respect for different cultural norms are just a few!
