An Examination of Emerging Bioethical Issues in Biomedical Research: An NAS Workshop


Join the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine on February 26, 2020 for a public workshop that will bring together stakeholders to discuss potential bioethical issues that may arise from new and emerging trends in biomedical research and society. The workshop will identify a range of current and emerging bioethical issues–both in basic and clinical research–and explore a broad range of stakeholder perspectives. The workshop will describe the state of the emerging science and potential pressing, recurring, emerging, and/or anticipated future bioethical issues in biomedical research and society that fall within the scope of the research and policy activities of the NIH. Potential topics may include: developing and integrating digital technologies into research and care; artificial intelligence and machine learning; emerging approaches for research and data collection; the impact of inequality on health, disease, and research participation; and the infrastructure for the bioethical research workforce.
