Gillian HueAssistant Teaching Professor, Director of Neuroethics

Gillian Hue is an assistant teaching professor in the NBB program and helped establish a neuroethics minor at Emory College, the first neuroethics minor at any college or university. She is involved in the Emory Tibet Science Initiative as the unit leader of the neuroscience track for the sustainability phase of the project and has led efforts in teaching neuroscience to Tibetan monastics since 2009. She leads responsible conduct of research training for students in the Spelman Research Initiative for Scientific Enhancement program and is the executive managing editor of the American Journal of Bioethics Neuroscience, the field’s premier journal. Hue demonstrates a deep commitment to her students’ learning and success, making herself available at all hours, giving time-intensive, one-on-one feedback to each student in her senior capstone course, and creating a safe space to tackle tension-filled topics in her neuroethics courses. Her warmth, openness, and willingness to share her personal experiences makes her an extraordinary academic and life coach. Countless students, particularly students underrepresented in the sciences, have found community and engagement in science because of Hue’s encouragement and mentoring.
