This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Colin Blakemore began on October 1 2003 his tenure as chief executive of the UK's Medical Research Council (MRC). He called on the scientific community to ensure that it engages in dialogue with the public over developments in medical technologies, in light of the increasingly complex ethical issues that some of them entail. Professor Blakemore also spoke of the need to "ensure that MRC funds are spent wisely", in a veiled reference to recent recommendations by the Commons' Select Committee on Science and Technology.
