Ethical Considerations

Rapid scientific and technological progress often gives rise to serious ethical questions of concern to society. The Cardiff Institute of Tissue Engineering and Repair aims to promote science and research in line with fundamental ethical principles whilst debating the potential impact of technological breakthroughs on the boundaries of important ethical questions. CITER aims to conduct research of benefit to patients, whilst respecting the ethical frameworks agreed on a societal basis. In addition, CITER aims to assist in making the public aware of the potential impact of key technological developments on patient care and furthering the public understanding of science.
