The next meeting of the President’s Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues will take place August 31 in Philadelphia. Building off part of the work in its last meeting, the Commission will continue its discussion of the impacts of bioethical advisory bodies, with an eye toward recommendations for future bodies.
While there is no agenda available as yet, the meeting comes after the Commission concluded a request for comment from the public on this topic. Regrettably, I cannot find the submitted comments online, but I would expect the Commission to discuss them during the August meeting.
As more information becomes available, I’ll post about it. But given my oversight of the May PCAST meeting, I don’t want to let this one slip through the cracks.
