Dr. Francis X. Shen, JD, PhD, seeks talented HMS students for one of several projects related to the ethical, legal, and social implications of advances in neuroscience and neurotechnology.
The student role will be to work on an applied research project in one of the following areas:
- Ethical, legal, and social implications of deep phenotyping (harnessing AI and multiple streams of data from individuals to better understand and predict symptoms of mental illness) (funded by NIH Bioethics Supplement, in partnership with Dr. Justin Baker, MD, PhD and Dr. Benjy Silverman, MD)
- Ethical, legal, and social implications of highly portable, field-based neuroimaging, including in international contexts (new, portable brain scanning technology is raising ethical and legal issues--we explore them), supported by NIH Neuroethics supplement; or
- Projects to develop accurate, actionable neuroscientific analysis and tools for use in ethics and law, including: criminal sentencing, juvenile justice, trauma and immigration justice, dementia and elder justice.
