The ethics portal might become a central place for everything relating to research and laboratory ethics. It might give an overview of thorny ethical questions, provide some relevant pieces of news, and link to individual pages discussing details.

The ideals which have always shone before me and filled me with the joy of living are goodness, beauty, and truth. To make a goal of comfort or happiness has never appealed to me; a system of ethics built on this basis would be sufficient only for a herd of cattle.

Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)

It is a good morning exercise for a research scientist to discard a pet hypothesis every day before breakfast. It keeps him young.

Konrad Lorenz (1903 - 1989)

Copy from one, it's plagiarism; copy from two, it's research.

Wilson Mizner (1876 - 1933)

Men regard it as their right to return evil for evil - and if they cannot, feel they have lost their liberty.

Aristotle (384BC - 322BC)
