Address the discursive and scholarly knowledge gaps impeding Islam and Science discourses through a 3-day multidisciplinary conference on the intersections of Islamic Theology and Law with Biomedicine.

Organizing Questions for the Conference: 

1.    How might scientific notions of harm and risk relate to, and work with, Islamic constructs of necessity and benefit in the context of biomedicine?

2.    What is an Islamic ontology of the soul? How does it relate to, and how might it work with, modern neuroscientific data in order to inform a better understanding of death and care for the dying?
