ABSTRACT

With each advance in biology, medicine and engineering, there are accompanying ethical issues that undoubtedly arise. Stem cells, synthetic biology, genetically-modified foods and organisms, cochlear implants and xenotransplantation are but a few areas that boast great potential, but can also stir great concern and generate fear. These advances and attending ethical dilemmas are emerging more rapidly than ever before. This new journal, Ethics in Biology, Engineering and Medicine (EBEM), will provide a forum for these important ethical issues and stands as an important repository for ethical discussions. The medical and biological engineering community welcomes this new journal and hopes that it will catalyze the discourse on creating a universal code of ethics for medical and biological engineers.
