The 16th meeting of the (US) Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues takes place on February 10th and 11th in Washington DC.
Erik Fisher, associate director for integration with the Center for Nanotechnology in Society and principal investigator for the SocioTechnical Integration Research (STIR) project, will address the issue of whether including an ethicist on a research team affect scientific research, and whether it generates productive collaboration among scholars.
Fisher was recently interviewed by Jonathan Hankins on behalf of the Bassetti Foundation about his role within the VIRI project, a transcription of which van be found here.
He will be a panel participant in the “Implementation Strategies for Ethics Integration” session, which will include a roundtable discussion, from 9:15 – 10:45 a.m. (EST). Further details and full agenda of the meeting are available here, and the proceedings will be broadcast via live webcast here.
