Reilly Center Reports

Welcome to the Reilly Center Reports, an online publication bringing critical information about breaking issues in the ethics and policy of science and technology to a wide audience of policy makers, science and technology journalists, thought leaders, and the scientific laity.

RCR aims to provide readers with road maps to the issues, and portals to bibliographies and other resources, with the goal of raising the level of education and awareness about the social impacts of science and technology among those who lead and shape public discourse.

This publication is edited by Jessica Baron and Melinda Gormley at the John J. Reilly Center for Science, Technology, and Values at the University of Notre Dame.

2013 Issue, Vol. 1
