Prof. Wolf to Lead Ethics & Public Policy Component of New Center Funded by $26 Million Grant from National Science Foundation
Professor Susan Wolf will lead the Ethics & Public Policy component of a new Engineering Research Center (ERC) on Advanced Technologies for the Preservation of Biological Systems (ATP-Bio) based at the University’s Institute for Engineering in Medicine and funded by a $26 million grant from the National Science Foundation. ATP-Bio will focus on new approaches to biopreservation to transform organ transplantation and other biological therapies, advance a sustainable global food supply, preserve biodiversity, and improve treatment of physical trauma. ATP-Bio research will put ethics and public policy at the forefront by conducting and publishing ethical analyses and engaging policy leaders to anticipate and consider the impacts of ATP-Bio research. Professor Wolf will work with faculty at the University of Minnesota and the cooperating ATP-Bio institutions (Massachusetts General Hospital, UC Riverside, and UC Berkeley) as well as an Ethics Advisory Panel.
