Jurassic Frankenstein: A Discussion About Maintaining Ethical Research

Please join us on Monday, February 4, for a panel discussion on the ethics of research.

The first genetically engineered human babies were born in China this year, kicking off another debate about scientific ethics.  How do we make sure that scientific research is ethical, in particular research involving humans or animals?  How can we test if a drug is safe to give to pregnant women? How are research animals protected? Can a step-parent give consent for their child to participate in a clinical trial? This month we ask the experts about how scientists and institutions police their research to ensure that scientific work is ethical.  Our panel members serve on the ethics boards of local research institutions or train early-career scientists in research ethics.

Who: Dr. Jones (Dept. Psychology, Fresno State University), Dr. Ozeran (UC San Franscisco Fresno Extension, and Valley Children’s Hospital), Dr. Telemeco, and Dr. Ross (both Dept. Biology, Fresno State University).

When: February 4, 2019 at 7PM

Where: Santa Fe Basque, 3110 N Maroa Ave., Fresno, CA 93704
