New York, NY
Welcome from the Conference Chair:
I am pleased to welcome you to the Seventh International Conference on Ethical Issues in Biomedical Engineering. Our goal is to bring together a target audience of biomedical engineers,clinicians, research scientists, philosophers, lawyers, fellows, residents, students and representatives from industry to discuss the ethical issues that face us as we develop new implants, devices, drugs and to improve the treatments and the quality of life of our patients. The papers to be presented represent a broad spectrum of topics reflecting the exciting, but sometimes controversial nature of many of the new developments in biomedical engineering and medicine.
We are grateful for the educational support from other organizations such as, International Federation for Medical &Biological Engineering, the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering, National Science Foundation, NYU College of Dentistry and several other companies.
Many people contributed to the success of this conference. I would like to thank the keynote speakers, the authors, session moderators, and the staff. The abstracts from this conference will be published in a special issue of the International Journal of Medical Implants and Devices that will be distributed at the conference. Selected papers will be published in Ethics in Biology, Engineering and Medicine: An International Journal. I am sure that you shall find this conference intellectually stimulating and a highly enjoyable experience.
Welcome to Brooklyn, New York.
Expected results are that participants will be able to have an opportunity to learn from and engage with some of the most influential and widely respected experts in their field and will become aware of:
· Ethical guidelines for the development of new medical devices and new potential treatment modalities
· Ethical issues involved in clinical trials and animal experiments
· Conflicts of interest and regulatory issues for new devices
