Seminar Open to the Public "What Literacy is Needed for Ethic Committee Members?"

2015-2-22 (Sun) 1:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.

While breakthroughs in clinical trial for advanced medical science technologies using iPS cells have made the headlines, scandals related to medical research and clinical application such as STAP cell scandals and repeated research misconduct have also attracted a lot of attention from the media.
In such a setting, the role of the ethic evaluation committee responsible for compliance monitoring of ministerial ordinances and guidelines pertaining to clinical research comes under the spotlight.
The ethic committee, consisting of medical researchers and non-medical members such as experts in law and ethics and members of the general public, is a place for communication among members in a variety of fields.

So what role and level of literacy are necessary for the non-medical members of the committee? In this open seminar, specialists who were members of the ethic committee will discuss with students and the general public. Interested individuals are cordially invited to attend.

Date & Time: Sunday, February 22, 2015, 1:00 - 6:00 p.m.
