Autonomous machines have gripped our imagination ever since the first robot flickered on the silver screen, Maria (left) in the 1927 film Metropolis. Most of the robots we know today—unglamorous devices like robotic welders on car assembly lines and the Roomba vacuum cleaner—fall short of those in science fiction. But our relationship with robots is about to become far more intimate. Would you be comfortable with a robot butler, or a self-driving car? How about a robo-scientist toiling away next to you at the bench, not only pipetting but also formulating hypotheses and designing experiments?

Behrmann and colleagues argue that curriculum improvements are needed to support Canadian ethics educators in their training of future public health professionals

The recent Ebola outbreak highlights the complexity of contemporary public health interventions that pose challenging ethical issues at the interface between research (e.g., the use of experimental medicines), health policy (e.g., resource allocation), and professional practice (e.g., who and how to intervene). And so public health professionals – whether they are frontline workers, researchers, or decision-makers – need to be equipped to deal with these challenges.

Even if many of the public at large are ambivalent, public discourse around GM is still highly polarised and the discussion is still seen to be ‘about GM’ – a narrative which seemingly hasn’t changed for 20 years.
On 19 November I had the privilege, on behalf of the Nuffield Council on Bioethics, of giving evidence to the House of Commons Science & Technology Select Committee on ‘GM and the Precautionary Principle’.

Last month the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues (Bioethics Commission) was excited to take part in the first-ever White House BRAIN Conference. As a part of the Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative, President Obama asked the Bioethics Commission to review the ethical issues associated with neuroscience research. In May, the Commission released Gray Matters: Integrative Approaches for Neuroscience, Ethics, and Society, the first of two volumes the Commission will produce in response to the President’s request. Vol. 2 is slated for release in spring 2015. The Bioethics Commission is pleased to play a key role in ensuring the incorporation of ethical considerations into neuroscience research, but just who are the brains behind those who advise about BRAIN?

The Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues (Bioethics Commission) heard this morning from a panel of experts representing the neurotechnology sector and regulatory agencies on the ethical considerations in direct-to-consumer (DTC) sales of neurotechnologies. The Bioethics Commission is reviewing the ethical issues associated with the application of neuroscience research in response to President Obama’s request as part of the BRAIN (Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies) Initiative.

Starting off the conversation, John Reppas, M.D., Ph.D., the Director of Public Policy at the Neurotechnology Industry Organization, discussed the current state of the DTC neurotechnology market. Breaking direct-to-consumer neurotechnologies into two categories, Reppas discussed technologies that measure data and have back-end technologies to analyze data, as well as devices that send artificially generated signals into the brain or body.

“Measurement devices are considered quite safe,” said Reppas. “For this product class, the major real-world concern would center on data privacy and ownership, as well as how that data ends up being presented back to the consumer,” said Reppas.

Who doesn’t feel a wrenching in their heart? The Ebola virus, first recognized in 1978, killed less than 2000 people in its first 35 years and double that number in the past 10 months. According to the World Health Organization 416 health care workers have contracted Ebola and, at least, 233 have died. That is almost 6% of deaths.

El periódico El País publica hoy un artículo ("Inyección farmacéutica") analizando el caso de la vacuna de la varicela y se adentran en el tema de los conflictos de interés de las sociedades científicas, como ya hiciéramos aquí en el post "Los autores declaran no tener ningún conflicto de interés (risas)". Podríamos hacer algún comentario al respecto, pero este extracto del artículo, conversando con el vicepresidente de la Asociación Española de Vacunología centra de forma magistral el problema que tenemos en relación con los conflictos de interés.
Fernando Moraga Llop, vicepresidente primero de la Asociación Española de Vacunología.
—¿Se siente presionado por la industria?
—En absoluto. Llevo mucho tiempo organizando congresos de vacunas. Nosotros decidimos los temas y los ponentes. Hombre, otra cosa es que yo me dirija a un laboratorio y le proponga que nos aporten la intervención de una persona que pueda explicarnos esto o aquello y ellos me lo indiquen.
—¿Su asociación está financiada en más de un 90% por las compañías?
—No sé si ese porcentaje…
—¿De qué presupuesto anual disponen?
—No lo sé ahora mismo. Tendría que hablar con el tesorero.
—Pero las empresas del sector financian sus actividades…
