The advisory status of an EAB recommendation implies that individual researchers, investigators, laboratories and institutions will retain their legal responsibilities under the terms of local, national and international regulations, as well as professional obligations in place from time to time.
The EAB will advise on its own initiative as well as upon requests made by researchers, or other members of HBP, about specific ethical, regulatory, and social issues arising from their research undertaken within the HBP or by collaborators.
Each member has a linkage with "Ethical Rapporteurs" (ERs) from HBP's Subprojects in accordance with their background and expertise. Additional information, including a short biography, of each member can be downloaded by clicking on their name.
