The IMSE Research Guide
The Islamic Medical and Scientific Ethics (IMSE) Project is a collaborative effort of two Georgetown Libraries, the Bioethics Research Library (Washington) and the School of Foreign Service-Qatar Library (Doha), to produce a comprehensive collection of resources pertaining to Islamic perspectives in the broad field of bioethics. The project staff has already collected over 1,700 relevant written works and compiled them into a searchable database.
This IMSE research guide shows users how to use the IMSE database effectively and educates them about the Islamic bioethics resources contained in the collection. As the project continues, this guide will be expanded with new materials and features. We invite you to check back often for updates.

The Intensive Bioethics Course is a week-long academic program in bioethics designed for health care practitioners, policy makers, clinical researchers and educators. The course addresses the day's most challenging topics in health care ethics in a setting that allows for sustained dialogue through lectures and small discussion groups with distinguished faculty.
Attendance at the IBC begins an ongoing relationship with the Kennedy Institute of Ethics and its resources. Course participants also receive a one-year subscription to the Kennedy Institute of Ethics Journal.
Registration begins January, 2013. Visit the Kennedy Institute of Ethics website for additional information and updates.
