Islam and Biomedical Research Ethics
Dr Mehrunisha Suleman
Wednesday, 02 December 2020, 2.30pm to 4pm
What is the moral universe of Muslim researchers? Through empirical research conducted in Malaysia and Iran, Dr Suleman will present on key understudied areas in research ethics including: the role of faith in moral deliberations within biomedical research ethics, the moral anxiety and frustration experienced by researchers when having to negotiate multiple moral sources and how the marginalisation of women, the prejudice and abuse faced by groups such as sex workers and those from the LGBT community are encountered and negotiated in Muslim contexts.
