Members of the Council meet quarterly. During these meetings, the Council reviews recent biomedical and biological advances that raise ethical questions and selects topics for further exploration. In addition to quarterly meetings, the Council considers broader themes and future work topics at its annual ‘Forward Look’ meeting. Separate subgroups of the Council also meet to discuss specific matters in more detail, for example, membership and education.
