Marchant quoted in 'Business Journal'

November 13, 2009

Professor Gary Marchant, Executive Director of the College of Law's Center for the Study of Law, Science, & Technology, was quoted in an article about the state universities' research ethics in the Oct. 30 issue of the Phoenix Business Journal.

Reporter Angela Gonzales' story, "Higher ethical standards: Universities to step up training in research ethics," discussed a requirement of the National Science Foundation that universities conducting clinical trials must provide training in research ethics for scientists involved in NSF-funded studies. Arizona's three state universities are working together to develop bioethics and research ethics curricula.

Marchant said ASU's bioethics programs are interspersed throughout various colleges. "There are a lot of great synergies between them," said Marchant, Lincoln Professor of Emerging Technologies, Law and Ethics. "We have so many different disciplines who have an interest in this area."
