Baruch A. Brody is the Leon Jaworski Professor of Biomedical Ethics and director of the Center for Medical Ethics and Health Policy at Baylor College of Medicine. He is also the Andrew Mellon Professor of Humanities in the Department of Philosophy at Rice University and director of the ethics program at The Methodist Hospital. In 2002, he was appointed Distinguished Service Professor at Baylor, the college's highest faculty honor, and was also awarded the Michael E. DeBakey Award for outstanding research.

Dr. Brody is the author and editor of 26 volumes and 150 articles and chapters. His major scholarly works are Abortion and the Sanctity of Human Life (M.I.T.: 1975), Identity and Essence (Princeton: 1981), Life and Death Decision Making (Oxford: 1988), The Ethics of Biomedical Research: An International Perspective (Oxford: 1998), and Taking Issue (Georgetown: 2003).

For his evening lecture, Dr. Brody will explore the nature of Jewish ethics, why it produces so many varied positions, and how that could be a model for pluralistic conversation in contemporary society.
