New ethics consulting service to help UW scientists navigate gray areas

A new service will provide the University of Wisconsin-Madison research community with another checkpoint on ethical challenges that arise across the research spectrum, from study design to the implications of results.

The Research Ethics Consultation Service (RECS), sponsored by UW-Madison and the Morgridge Institute for Research, is available to all researchers at UW-Madison and affiliated research centers. The service is co-directed by Norman Fost, professor of pediatrics and bioethics in the School of Medicine and Public Health; and Pilar Ossorio, professor of law and bioethics and ethics scholar-in-residence at the Morgridge Institute.
