The International Master in Biomedical Sciences (IMBS) team invites you to the Symposium “Science, Ethics and Arts”. IMBS is a joint Program and collaboration between the Albert Ludwig University Freiburg and the University of Buenos Aires. We annually welcome students from all parts of the world. We warmly invite you to attend the Workshop "Science, Ethics and Arts", which is subject to registration from Monday, October 10 to Thursday, October 13, 2016. This Workshop is an integral part of the two-year Master program in Biomedical Sciences. Lecturers from the Albert Ludwig University Freiburg, the Thales Academy Freiburg, the University of Buenos Aires, FLACSO Buenos Aires, and the National University of Mexico will address topics related to the ethics of human health, science, technology, and research. In addition, we are happy to announce that regional artists will exhibit their work at the Institute for Molecular Medicine and Cell Research during the whole week. The lecturers introduce students to selected topics in bioethics during morning lectures form 9 am to 12 pm. In the afternoon sessions from 2 pm to 4 pm, students are required to work on these topics in small groups of three to five persons. The outcome of the group work will be subject to a presentation at the end of each afternoon session. Since the workshop focuses on introductory themes in bioethics, all academic and non-academic backgrounds are welcome. After the successful completion of the workshop which requires the daily attendance of the registered students, students will receive an official certificate of attendance by the IMBS program.
