Watch: Good Science Discussion Series: What is Ethical Research?

‘What is Ethical Research?’ is the second panel event in the Good Science Discussion Series, a series of public conversations to reflect on what good science looks like, what corrupts it, what challenges it, and what fosters it.

For this event a panel of speakers with diverse backgrounds in bioengineering, research governance, health research, and forensic and legal medicine were invited to respond to the question, ‘What is Ethical Research?’ Following the four introductory talks there was moderated discussion chaired by Professor Aaron Maule (School of Biological Sciences, Queen’s University Belfast), that explored insights from the stories and delved deeper into some of the following issues: informed consent and data sharing, commercialisation, science communication.

The panellists are:

  • Louise Dunlop, Head of Research Governance, Ethics and Integrity, Queen’s University Belfast
  • Cliona McGovern, Head of Subject in Forensic & Legal Medicine, University College Dublin
  • Janet Diffin, Senior Programme Manager within Health and Social Care Research and Development Division
  • James McLaughlin, Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Ulster University
  • This event took place in Queen’s University Belfast on Thursday, 13 June 2024.

It was made possible with the kind support of Queen’s University Belfast, the Institute of Physics, and the Royal Society of Chemistry.
