Medicine practitioners and scientists continuously work at the crossroads of ethical dilemmas, targeting to strike the right balance between the advancement of science and technology and their responsibility towards society. NIEHS has a special program, The Bioethics Program, that provides annual training in conducting research and sponsoring workshops and seminars. It also helps focussing groups on ethical issues in environmental health research.The ethical issues are constantly soaring with the newer developments in life sciences, biotechnology, medicine, and their increasing co-relation with politics, law, and philosophy disciplines. This is gravely concerning for researchers as even a minor violation of the ethical principles can have detrimental consequences. This webinar aims to aid researchers in broadening the scope of their ethical evaluation and simultaneously analyzing the morality of their actions that may result in both, benefiting or harming the society.
