to the NIH's Bioethics Resources on the Web!
Bioethics Resources on the Web provides a compilation of web links to information of potential use and interest to diverse audiences—biomedical and behavioral researchers, health care professionals, research participants, patients and patient advocates, students and faculty in different disciplines, and the general public. With the aim of helping individuals and groups explore the vast array of issues in bioethics, the information accessible through this portal spans a wide range of topics, including human subjects and animal research, institutional review boards (IRBs; also known as research ethics committees), clinical ethics, international research ethics issues, genetics, and neuroethics, among others. Teaching materials (including case studies and curricula), conferences and events, journals in the field, and academic centers and institutes in bioethics are just a few types of the information accessible through this site, which also provides links to information about bioethics initiatives at the institutes and centers of NIH and other government agencies. For beginning students, as well as more experienced professionals and laypeople, Bioethics Resources on the Web offers easy access to key documents and references in the field.
