Duke researchers across a range of disciplines explore issues at the intersection of science, technology, and human health.

The integration of technology and health has contributed to improvements in longevity and the control of disease. Medicine and health sciences are also moral endeavors, with deep influence on the achievement of a good life. Utilizing novel technologies within the medical and health sciences therefore demands significant ethical and moral discussion, particularly as technological advancement provides insight into human nature.

Duke researchers in the science and society of health and medicine explore the role of these technologies in modern healthcare with the goal of improving human health and wellbeing.
