Objectives: At the completion of this conference the participants should be able to:

  • Weigh the social benefits of medical knowledge derived from tissue research against competing moral goods such as the protection of cultural traditions and beliefs as well as protection from exploitation.
  • Examine the concept of trust, particularly from the perspective of marginalized populations and its importance in the research enterprise.
  • Identify gaps in knowledge and values between the science community and the public regarding the use of human tissue.

Designed For: Physicians, Physician Assistants, Nurses, Healthcare Educators, Residents, Students, Public Health professionals, other interested healthcare providers and members of the public.

The Use of Human Tissue and Public Trust: The Chasm between Science and Ethics. Presented Monday September 19, 2011

The benefits from using human tissue/biomedical samples in research are great but do these benefits outweigh the possible harms to individuals or communities? This day-long conference will bring together researchers, clinicians, humanists, and members of the public to examine and discuss these ethical issues that impact us all.
