Biomedical research is guided by complex and strict ethical processes. But what happens when you encounter an ethical dilemma; when a person's right to privacy stands in the way of a medical breakthrough? How do law and ethics protect patients and research subjects - their privacy, safety, and dignity?
Hosted by science writer Claire O'Connell (Silicon Republic, Irish Times) and featuring biomedical scientists Cliona O'Farrelly and Orla Shiels and philosophy researcher Luna Dolezal, the event will look at the recruitment of patients for health studies, the role of law in medicine, and how shame and stigma can impact patients.
Location: Debating Chamber, GMB Building, Trinity College Dublin.
Part of Probe: Research Uncovered at Trinity College Dublin. This European Researchers' Night project is funded by the European Commission under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions.
