In this section of the portal, we will develop medical humanities modules that explore the intersections of medicine with technology and science. Medicine relies upon many related sciences—biology, chemistry, engineering, optics, physics, computer science, and other sciences.
Science and technology are also extending the reach and possibilities of human biology and survival, which raise ethical and spiritual questions. The technologies of biomedicine have opened a new chapter in human history and may extend human life span.
We are developing this section of the portal in collaboration with the Life Sciences and Bachelor of Health Sciences Programs at McMaster University, but we invite all colleagues and students interested in the field to consider developing contributions.
