The Yale Center hosts scholars at Yale’s campus in New Haven. The program permits scholars to conduct research and to interact with Yale faculty in several disciplines. As a visiting scholar at Yale, Professor Lewis’ research will focus on the ethics issues that relate to new reproductive technologies.
