About the Hastings Center

Our Mission

The Hastings Center is an independent, nonpartisan, and nonprofit bioethics research institute, founded in 1969, that addresses fundamental ethical issues in health, medicine, and the environment, as they affect individuals, communities, and societies. Much of the Center’s research addresses bioethics issues in three broad areas: care and decision making at the end of life, public health priorities, and new and emerging technologies. The research is carried out by scholars at the Center, leading interdisciplinary teams that draw on experts around the world, including an elected association of leading researchers influential in bioethics called Hastings Center Fellows. The teams convene to frame and examine issues that inform professional practice, public conversation, and social policy. The Center’s two journals, Hastings Center Report and IRB: Ethics & Human Research, bring the best scholarship and commentary in bioethics to members and other readers worldwide.

Research grants, charitable contributions, and income from a modest reserve fund support the Center’s work.
