This webinar will explore the concept of bioethics, which is value-laden, by using perspectives from social and cultural anthropology, practical ethics, science practice, and policy decisions. The speaker will draw examples from the public health realm in India to discuss and observe that ‘bioethics’ should not be limited to mere protocol compliance but should guide science practice. Further, the need to identify, analyse and resolve ethical challenges in everyday science practice that are directly impacting society at large will be discussed.
We strongly encourage students (undergraduate and above), educators, scientists and science enthusiasts to join the webinar.
