    An ethic committee was inaugurated recently at the Shanghai Institutes for Biological Sciences (SIBS), a research arm of CAS in life sciences.

    The committee is designed to carry out reviews and offer advices on ethic issues arising from scientific research involving human and animal subjects conducted by SIBS staff. It will also be responsible for providing guidelines for development of proper procedures to deal with the issues.

    Chaired by Prof. Ma Weijun, an expert in biochemistry and molecular biology and vice director of Health Science Center under SIBS, the committee is composed of experts from various fields, such as biotechnology, fundamental or clinical medicine, pharmacology, therapeutic appliances, sociology, morality, law and public personages. At the inaugural ceremony, SIBS Vice-President Wu Jiarui conferred the letters of appointment to the committee members at the meeting.

    Experts say that the inauguration of the committee will help ensure the research work at SIBS more compatible with the international conventions.
