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:

  1. 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)
  2. 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
  3. 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.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
