Medical science is making incredible advances in personalised medicine. Bionic implants such as the cochlear, bionic eye and neural implants are now available, mimicking our body's functions to replace 'faulty parts'. Scientists are currently forging ahead with regenerative medicine, exploring the use of 3D printers to print an individual's live cells into 3D structures. The goal is to use a person's own stem cells to print new tissue to replace damaged organs, nerve tissue and bone. But, amid the enthusiasm for such extraordinary discoveries, we must also consider the ethical and social repercussions.

Ensuring biotechnologies promote justice and human flourishing

Professor of philosophy, Susan Dodds, is helping to ensure that emerging medical developments undergo rigorous ethical examination and public debate.

'Policy makers, scientists and people who want to engage in the policy debate need to consider the social impacts of their decisions and respect the reality of embodied human existence,' said Professor Dodds.

'We need to consider human vulnerability and how people relate to one another in our communities. We should structure social policies and regulation in a way that promotes human flourishing and protects against harm to individuals and communities, taking into account people's capabilities and vulnerabilities.'

Professor Dodds said about medical technologies that we need to ensure we make the most of the opportunities, but also protect ourselves against mistakes. This will sometimes involve complex considerations, for example:

  • How will regenerative medicine change our approach to health care and health systems?
  • If organs become replaceable, will people become cavalier about their health?
  • If so, should treatment be available to people who don't look after their health?
  • Wouldn't that conflict with the view that access to health care should be based on a patient's need rather than merit?
  • What will the costs be and will it be accessible to all?
  • What about people who don't want to be artificially enhanced in this way? Should they have access to other health services if they refuse the new treatments?

'It is essential that there is fair treatment of people's differences, vulnerabilities and choices. We also have to consider the ways that our choices will affect people who are not yet born,' said Professor Dodds.

Professor Dodds has co-edited (with Catriona Mackenzie and Wendy Rogers) a book, Vulnerability: New Essays in Ethics and Feminist Theory, which explores the theoretical understanding of vulnerability. It considers, from a feminist perspective, the ethical significance of the concept of vulnerability. It applies this theoretical work to a range of themes in bioethics and intergenerational ethics, such as the responsibilities of parents for their children, and of younger people for older members of the community.

Professor Dodds said that we must also understand the factors that shape public confidence in the technologies and in the associated regulatory frameworks that are meant to protect the community.

'In the area of regenerative medicine, involving new structures for growing tissues from patients' own stem cells, standardised drug trials don't really work as a way of establishing the safety and efficacy of the treatment. There is no 'standard' mechanism for testing safety in these cases, so we must carefully consider the risks. For example, could the use of stem cells increase patients' risk of cancer? How will the body react in the future to the other materials used in printing tissues or organs?'

Ultimately, the role of Professor Dodds as a philosopher is to push the debate by questioning assumptions.

'Success for me is making a useful contribution to policy discussions, by helping people who previously felt comfortable with their position to consider additional perspectives and questions that they might otherwise have overlooked,' she said.

Professor Dodds said that it is not only important for society to debate these issues, but it is also important for scientists to anticipate what the public and the healthcare system will support to ensure success of their discoveries in moving from the lab to the clinic.

Susan Dodds is a Professor of Philosophy. Her research explores the intersections of ethics, political philosophy, moral psychology, feminist theory and public policy. She has published extensively on issues relating to bioethics, deliberative democracy, relational autonomy, health policy and regulation. Professor Dodds is Chief Investigator and Ethics, Policy and Public Engagement theme leader on the Australian Research Council (ARC) Australian Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science. She is Vice-President of the Australasian Council of Deans of Arts, Social Science and Humanities (DASSH) and member of the Australian Health Ethics Committee (AHEC) of the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC).
