Research within ethical bounds

Feed URL:

Professor Ulf Schmidt, of the School of History, has been awarded £20,200 from the Wellcome Trust for an international conference on ‘Research Within Bounds: Protecting Human Participants in Modern Medicine – The Declaration of Helsinki, 1964-2014’ in Switzerland on 12/13 September 2013.

The aim of the Symposium, which Professor Schmidt is jointly organising with colleagues from Germany and Switzerland, is to mark the 50th Anniversary of the Declaration of Helsinki by the World Medical Association (WMA), one of the most important landmarks in biomedical research ethics.

By bringing together leading world experts from the medical humanities, biomedicine, the medical sciences, bioethics and health law, including keynote speakers who served on President Obama’s Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues, the Symposium will reflect upon and critically examine our current global regulatory system which is aimed at protecting experimental participants in developed and developing countries.
