About MI Lunches
Human health is essential for the enjoyment and maximisation of almost all human activities. As our health futures rapidly evolve alongside great medical, scientific, and technological advancement, we are faced with the obligation to both protect patients and promote ethical research. How to successfully navigate these interconnected and complex relationships is a challenge not yet met. And, for the first time ever, the Care Act 2014 now requires public bodies to promote health research, but we currently have no methods whatsoever to do so. The Mason Institute is at the forefront of research into the protection and promotion of human health through robust health research regulation. Through a yearlong programme of roadshow-style events, the Mason Institute Lunch Series reaches across the boundaries of discipline and institution to directly engage with crucial human health actors – researchers, practitioners, policy-makers, patients, and the public – to exploit on-going research and explore this challenge.
