Like the Helsinki Declaration, which forever altered the ethical landscape of human clinical research, the aim of the Basel Declaration is to bring the scientific community together to further advance the implementation of ethical principles such as the 3Rs whenever animals are being used and to call for more trust, transparency and communication on the sensitive topic of animals in research. The Basel Declaration Society, founded on October 5th. 2011, strive to promote the Basel Declaration. Visit gallery...

  • Discussing Biomedical Research with the Public: Today's Generational Changes that Create the Imperative for Transparency

    Wednesday, February 21, 2018
    2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. EST

    Most biomedical research institutions keep a very low public profile. Ken Gordon, Executive Director of the Northwest Association for Biomedical Research, will show how the traditional approach to discussing biomedical research is counterproductive. The millennial generation is demanding enhanced transparency, openness and public accountability. Failure to respond to these demands for transparency leaves the biomedical research community open to the charge that it is being deceptive and can break down the trust that is needed for the continuation of scientific development.

    In this interactive webinar, Gordon will outline the antecedents to the perceived breakdown in trust, and he will suggest strategies that biomedical research organizations should follow to re-engage with all communities.
