Nano-bionics and Clinical Trials Discussion

Nano-bionics and Clinical Trials Discussion

Nano-bionic medical devices promise breakthroughs in treating disabilities and chronic conditions, such as deafness and epilepsy. The testing of these devices in clinical trials raises a range of issues. This one-day decision-based dialogue at the Innovation Campus in Wollongong brought clinicians, medical researchers, social scientists, regulators, health policy makers, health economists, consumer groups, unions, citizens, patients and carers together to consider emerging nano-bionic medical devices and ethical issues associated with clinical trials, in order to inform decision making about research and policy. This STEP project was a collaboration between the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES), the University of Tasmania and NETS-PACE.
