About Science & Society

The Duke Initiative for Science & Society is an interdisciplinary initiative that examines the wide-ranging and integral role of science/technology in social institutions and culture. Science & Society integrates and fosters innovation in related research, education, and engagement at Duke by adopting a pluralistic approach to understanding how science, technology and human endeavors intersect with a specific focus on ethical, legal, and social implications for science and technology. For more information, visit our website at http://www.scienceandsociety.duke.edu.
