An Introduction to Bioethics


Medical Ethics or Bioethics, study of moral issues in the fields of medical treatment and research. The term is also sometimes used more generally to describe ethical issues in the life sciences and the distribution of scarce medical resources. The professional fields that deal with ethical issues in medicine include medicine, nursing, law, sociology, philosophy, and theology, though today medical ethics is also recognized as its own discipline.

Medical ethics traces its roots to several early codes of ethics such as the ancient Greek Hippocratic Oath, which required physicians above all to "do no harm;" professional codes of ethics such as the one written by English physician Thomas Percival in the 18th century that provided a foundation for the first code of ethics established in 1846 by the founders of the American Medical Association; and the Nuremberg Code for research ethics on human subjects that was established during the war crime trials at the close of World War II (1939-1945) in response to the gross abuses in human experimentation performed in Nazi Germany. The advent of new medical and reproductive technologies after the 1950s further complicated the moral and societal issues of medical research and practice. This article discusses several of the most prominent issues in medical ethics.

Considering a Job in Biotech/Pharma


Although academia and industry differ in many ways—the speed of research, the methods of funding, and the asking of basic versus applied research questions—ultimately, the two environments are more similar than they are different. Nonetheless, several misperceptions about a career in industry tend to circulate in academia. This article attempts to clarify some of these differences and perhaps will help dispel some of the myths. By Emma Hitt


Among academics, a job in industry can represent the quintessential black box; for example, intellectual property that results from commercial science is necessarily protected. As a result though, certain myths, some of which carry extra weight because they do in fact involve a kernel of truth, tend to circulate among academics about industry. These include the idea that working in an industry job is somehow "easier" than pursuing a career in academia, or that a job in industry does not allow the opportunity to be creative or to publish work in one's own name. Also, fueled by the existence of closed off labs and lack of published results, aspersions may be cast about the quality of science practiced in industry and even the validity of the data




With rates of government grant funding in academia currently lower than 10 percent, no guarantees exist anymore in the academic world. "The fact is it's a lot harder being an academic scientist today than it was even 15 years ago when I made the transition," says Harry Klee, professor in the Plant Molecular and Cellular Biology Program at the University of Florida in Gainesville. Klee spent 11 years in industry in the plant sciences program at Monsanto before returning to academia. According to Klee, in academia, grant funding is harder to get and there are fewer jobs than there were previously. "These factors put pressure on people to work harder and harder to succeed," he says. He adds that "it's not necessarily the students with the best grades that succeed in academia—it requires a very large skill set, only one part of which is intelligence." According to Klee, these challenges in academia lead students to think they will not have to work as hard if they go into industry.


However, Klee says it's an "absolute fallacy" to think that if you cannot write well, give a good talk, or do not want to justify your spending, you should simply get a job in industry. "If you want to succeed and really get ahead, you'd better know how to write and how to talk in front of a group. At the company I worked for," he says "we had to justify what we were doing and defend it to our peers because we were competing for a pool of money."
