A collaboration between the GenEthics Center of the National Humane Genome Center at Howard University and the Tuskegee University National Center for Bioethics in Research and Health Care to enhance the links between genetics and humanities at HBCUs.

We propose to advance teaching and scholarship in humanities and genetics by creating a pioneering, multidisciplinary, interuniversity collaboration between the GenEthics Unit of the NHGC and the Tuskegee Bioethics Center. The goals of the collaboration are to: 1) Develop Howard and Tuskegee faculty in the integration of humanities and genetics; 2) Incorporate humanities and genetics themes into relevant courses at Howard and Tuskegee; 3) Produce the curriculum for a humanities and genetics summer course for HBCU faculty; and 4) Plan and execute the inaugural offering of the HBCU faculty humanities and genetics course.
