    Patenting Foundational Technologies: Lessons From CRISPR and Other Core Biotechnologies.Oliver Feeney, Julian Cockbain, Michael Morrison, Lisa Diependaele, Kristof Van Assche & Sigrid Sterckx - 2018 - American Journal of Bioethics 18 (12):36-48.
    In 2012, a new and promising gene manipulation technique, CRISPR-Cas9, was announced that seems likely to be a foundational technique in health care and agriculture. However, patents have been granted. As with other technological developments, there are concerns of social justice regarding inequalities in access. Given the technologies’ “foundational” nature and societal impact, it is vital for such concerns to be translated into workable recommendations for policymakers and legislators. Colin Farrelly has proposed a moral justification for the use of patents (...)

    Introduction to the Article Collection ‘Translation in Healthcare: Ethical, Legal, and Social Implications’.Michael Morrison, Donna Dickenson & Sandra Soo-Jin Lee - 2016 - BMC Medical Ethics 17 (1):74.
    New technologies are transforming and reconfiguring the boundaries between patients, research participants and consumers, between research and clinical practice, and between public and private domains. From personalised medicine to big data and social media, these platforms facilitate new kinds of interactions, challenge longstanding understandings of privacy and consent, and raise fundamental questions about how the translational patient pathway should be organised.This editorial introduces the cross-journal article collection "Translation in healthcare: ethical, legal, and social implications", briefly outlining the genesis of the (...)

    Research Using Free Text Data in Medical Records Could Benefit From Dynamic Consent and Other Tools for Responsible Governance.Michael Morrison - 2020 - Journal of Medical Ethics 46 (6):380-381.
    As the capacity to generate, store, aggregate and combine ever greater volumes and types of data about individuals, behaviours and interactions continues to expand apace, so too does the challenge of ensuring suitable and appropriate governance of that data. In broad terms, the challenge is simple; how to ensure the benefits of data, such as improvements in service delivery or individual and collective well-being, while avoiding harms such as discrimination, injustice or placing undue burdens on individuals and groups. The difficulty, (...)

    Between Scylla and Charybdis: Reconciling Competing Data Management Demands in the Life Sciences.Louise M. Bezuidenhout & Michael Morrison - 2016 - BMC Medical Ethics 17 (1):29.
    BackgroundThe widespread sharing of biological and biomedical data is recognised as a key element in facilitating translation of scientific discoveries into novel clinical applications and services. At the same time, twenty-first century states are increasingly concerned that this data could also be used for purposes of bioterrorism. There is thus a tension between the desire to promote the sharing of data, as encapsulated by the Open Data movement, and the desire to prevent this data from ‘falling into the wrong hands’ (...)

  6. Exploring the Role of Dedicated Online Biotechnology News Providers in the Innovation Economy. [REVIEW]Lucas Cornips & Michael Morrison - 2012 - Science, Technology, and Human Values 37 (3):262-285.
    In this article, the authors examine the role of dedicated online biotechnology news providers in disseminating and shaping stories of technological promise within the bioeconomy. In this field, communication of future-orientated claims is closely linked to a firm’s ability to attract speculative investment and so dedicated biotech news services play an important role in facilitating this interaction between technology producers and investors. Using the emerging field of regenerative medicine as a case study, the authors illustrate how coverage of RM biotechnologies (...)

    Governance of Research Consortia: Challenges of Implementing Responsible Research and Innovation Within Europe.Jane Kaye, Sarah Coy, Heather Gowans, Miranda Mourby & Michael Morrison - 2020 - Life Sciences, Society and Policy 16 (1):1-19.
    Responsible Research and Innovation is a cross-cutting priority for scientific research in the European Union and beyond. This paper considers whether the way such research is organised and delivered lends itself to the aims of RRI. We focus particularly on international consortia, which have emerged as a common model to organise large-scale, multi-disciplinary research in contemporary biomedical science. Typically, these consortia operate through fixed-term contracts, and employ governance frameworks consisting of reasonably standard, modular components such as management committees, advisory boards, (...)
