The Berman Institute takes on some of the greatest challenges facing the world today—challenges that lie at the heart of progress and our humanity. As one of the largest and most distinguished bioethics programs in the world, it is Johns Hopkins University’s home for bioethics scholarship and teaching, working with and within the schools of Public Health, Medicine, Advanced International Studies, Nursing, and, Arts and Sciences. The Institute’s work helps foresee and inform debates on complex moral challenges; discerns ethically acceptable alternatives in medical, scientific, and public health policy; and helps to prepare the next generation of health professionals as well as scholars in bioethics.
Our work would not be possible without the generosity of our donors. Philanthropy is the foundation on which Johns Hopkins and the Berman Institute were built, and continues to fuel them today, powering the engine of discovery and helping us to build a better world.
Long standing Johns Hopkins Berman Institute National Advisory Board member and supporter, Stephanie Cooper Greenberg, shares her observations on the institute’s role in navigating these complicated times.
“In the world we live in, there’s never been more need for the Berman Institute of Bioethics and its remarkable scholars who help us understand and decode the intricacies of fast moving science and medicine that affect our daily lives. When a bioethical challenge crops up on the front page or in the course of daily living, I know that those at the Berman Institute have already thought it through, and have helped me and others better understand the heart of the issue, what’s at stake, and helps me, and others, make an informed opinion.
