Dear Friend of the CBC:

Today we are pleased to officially launch the website for our Paul Ramsey Institute. As many of you know, the life, work, and thought of Paul Ramsey has been essential to The Center for Bioethics and Culture since our founding. As one of the most important ethicists of the 20th century, Ramsey’s commitment to the sanctity and dignity of human life has shone with clarity and brightness as a beacon in the general darkness of academic bioethics for the past fifty years.

For this very reason, our Paul Ramsey Institute serves as an ongoing program to further the thought and methods of Ramsey to educate and shape future generations of bioethics leaders.

The Paul Ramsey Institute brings leading thinkers in the field of bioethics together with current graduate students, medical students, and early-career academic and medical professionals for a two-year training program.

We invite you to visit the new website to learn more about the work of the Paul Ramsey Institute, our Ramsey Scholars and Fellows, and how to apply to participate in next year’s cohort of participants. Applications are due April 3, 2015.

Thank you for your continued support of The Center for Bioethics and Culture, which allows us to ensure that Ramsey’s great contribution to building a truly human future continues through our work today. It’s a privilege to carry on this project and we deeply appreciate your partnership with us.
