Big Questions at the Intersection of Bioscience and Religion

Friday, April 14th | 5:30-7:30pm | Marquette Hall, Room 100

The Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW), Marquette University and Viterbo University are co-hosting a seminar series, "Big Questions at the Intersection of Bioscience and Religion." This series is comprised of four interdisciplinary sessions, each focused on a specific question about the human being and modeling dialogue between bioscientific and religious perspectives. Our focus questions revolve around the questions of human origin, its essence, its fatedness, and its uniqueness. 

Our next upcoming session, to be hosted at Marquette on April 14th from 5:30-7:30pm, will focus on the question "What does it mean to be fully human from a theological and biological perspective?". Flyer coming soon with more information.
