Global Health Ethics and Science

Global health ethics and is an elaboration of how scientist especially biologists contribute to the integrity of science in the public. A biologist is a scientist devoted to and producing results in biological fields through the study of life. They study organisms and their relationships to their environment. They majorly involve themselves in basic research and they try to invent underling theories that control how organisms work. Most a time, a biologist tries to develop and improve medical, agricultural and industrial processes in diverse fields.

Scientists have contributed a lot to the integrity of science in the public. Particularly, biologists have tried to make life so simple through their several researches that they engage themselves in. Most important of all, our lives rely on these biologists because it is them who find the diseases that affect our lives and further still they try and identify the possible cures to them. Scientists most a time conduct their researches in laboratories with the help of wide variety of other relevant equipments. Some further still use animals and other organisms including plants in their experiments. This mostly happens to botanists, zoologists, and physiologists. Other researches can also take place outside the laboratories when it is necessary. Scientists often work in teams, interacting with engineers, scientists of other disciplines, business managers and even technicians. Examples of biologists include zoologists, botanists, microbiologists, biophysicists, ecologists and computational biologists among others.

In our contemporary societies, scientists and biologists in particular, provide much knowledge needed for progress in technology and medicine. Preferably, we provide the knowledge and understanding needed to make good social decisions on the issues like how to avoid terrible damage our environment or how to deal with epidemics. Certainly, there are mistakes everywhere but a biologist tries as much possible to ensure his or her work is not used for destructive purposes.

Biological reasoning is developed out of philosophy with the need for understanding how things around us work. Scientists are often persons who want to see change taking place in all that they do. They want to know why things happen the way they do. Biologists have the will to explore and discover. They use their resources to bring about change, whether it is a change in medicine, improvements in the environment or creating more efficient recourses. The role of biomedical scientists in an area such as surgery includes tests for emergency and other infections. The successful performance of this key role in modern healthcare relies on the accuracy and efficiency of work by biomedical scientists because patients lives and the treatment of illness depend on their skill and knowledge.

Biologists have helped a great deal in the informal education sector, for instance, in the science centers. Biologists have participated on the boards of science centers, planetariums, environmental centers and even museums to review science contents of scripts for science exhibits, planetarium shows or even environmental programs. They have also involved in giving talks to science centers. Further still, they have collaborated in the creation of museums for science exhibitions and planetarium shows. Biologists have served as science co-coordinators for even scouts troops. This gives explanations of how scientists, particularly biologists, have helped to the integrity of science to the public.

Most scientists have participated in some form of communication of research to non specialist audiences in the past years and this has greatly contributed to the integrity of science in different parts of the world. The research findings have been of great help to both the scholars and even science tutors. Despite the fact that these scientists do not have well communicative skills to educate the public about the social and ethical implications of their researches, they have still managed to encourage institutions to use the research findings that help them in different fields. Biologists support hospital blood banks and the transfusion service. They prepare blood transfusions and plasma fractions to administer to patients and are responsible for ensuring that the blood groups of both donors and patients are compatible. With this knowledge, the biologists have helped the nurses and doctors in various hospitals of the world to manage their professions with keen ness.

Biologists have helped speak out in support of professional development opportunities for teachers of various fields. This has been enabled through a one on one talk between a biologist and a teacher, or even through presentations in teacher workshops or some aspect of science. This contributes to the integrity of the science by implementing the curriculum of the teacher, or even by hiring the teacher as an intern in the science research institution. Biologists have further helped integrate science knowledge in schools of education as they promote the subjects that are science related. This has been achieved by teaching a science course or workshop segment for pre-service teachers. Further still, the biologists have collaborated with education faculty to improve courses on teaching science (Michael, 65). This has led to development of more science courses in the teaching curriculum for teachers-to-be.

Sciences and biologists in particular have spoken out in professional meetings about the importance and value of science involvement in systemic change. They have further reviewed science standards for science accuracy and the stat framework for science education. They have collaborated on writing and adapting science standards. They have also made the public participate on state boards for adoption of standards, instructional materials or teacher certification.

Biologists have had talks with school students and participated in many science activities with the students. They have helped students in their science research projects and they have mentored the students in their laboratories so as to educate the students on the importance of science to the environment and further discussions with students including the one on one talk have helped in integrating the public on science.
