Our doctors & scientists are governed by medical research ethics & 
drug safety.  One organization devoted to the development of 
guidelines is: Council for International Organizations of Medical 
Sciences, which seems to be part of the WHO. So for those with 
questions about medical research ethics, possibly something like the 
Science Media Centre in the UK, might want to write them, concerning 
medical ethics. When you go to their site you will find a number of 
individuals to whom you can write

CIOMS will be hosting a panel discussion which will take place on 
Tuesday 30 November 2010 from 09:00 to 12:00, at WHO Headquarters, to 
be held in conjunction with the CIOMS Executive Committee Meeting and 
General Assembly.

As you may know, CIOMS has promoted ethics since its creation in 1949 
and this mini-symposium will focus on aspects of ethical update and 
more specifically the implementation of ethical principles in medical 
practice (from bench to bedside) with case examples.

The topic of "Implementation of ethical principles in medicine from 
bench to bedside: How the physician may integrate the treatment of his 
patient with science" is to be discussed by a panel of expert members, 
followed by a question and answer session.

This is expected to be a most interesting and informative discussion 
and CIOMS will be announcing the full list of Panel Members in the 
near future.
