THE BENEFITS AND PERILS OF DUAL USE
March 13, 2012
Neuroscience Center, Conference Rooms C/D
6001 Executive Boulevard, Bethesda
Presenter: Henry T. Greely, J.D., director of the Center for Law and the Biosciences at Stanford University. Greely will lay out how the revolutions in neuroscience, though driven, and funded, by scientific and medical imperatives, have the potential to be “dual use,” involving both biomedical applications and addressing societal challenges. The theories and technologies produced by neuroscience are likely to be used to predict behavior, read minds, ascribe responsibility, treat non-disease behaviors, and generally enhance the human experience.

INFORMED CONSENT FOR PEDIATRIC BIOBANKING
March 27, 2012
Lipsett Amphitheater (Building 10)
Sponsor: Biospecimens Interest Group (BIG)
Sponsor: Biospecimens Interest Group (BIG) The presentation will explore the controversy about using stored pediatric biospecimens from grown donors and the ethics of seeking or waiving consent for studies when pediatric donors reach the age of majority. Confusion about ethical and legal obligations and the complicated logistics of re-contacting pediatric donors and/or their families have plagued pediatric investigators despite the potential for advancing scientific knowledge. Broadcast live at http://videocast.nih.gov. For information, contact Helen Moore (email@example.com, 301-496-0206) or Yaffa Rubinstein (firstname.lastname@example.org or 301-402-4338).
