ON-Lion Letter
Bradley Prize recipient Leon R. Kass is the Addie Clark Harding Professor in the Committee on Social Thought of the University of Chicago and the Hertog Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research.

A medical doctor, Kass’s earlier research model in molecular biology led him to contemplate the human consequences of science, an area of inquiry in which he has been engaged for more than 30 years.  His scholarship has focused on the broader moral and cultural questions raised by biomedical advances. 

Many of Kass's powerful books and essays have been on the prospects of, and problems with, biotechnology unguided by ethical and philosophic reflections.

He was the first Chairman of The President’s Council on Bioethics.
