I was recently invited by the OECD to give a talk on Building Capacity to Implement the OECD Recommendation on Responsible Innovation in Neuro-technology.
- The first is a national/US context in which I learned from participating in the advisory committee to the NIH director in the process of generating a neuroethics roadmap for the US BRAIN Initiative.
- The second is a transnational context involving a consortium of the 7 large scale national-level brain research projects around the globe called the International Brain Initiative (IBI) wherein I co-chair the Global Neuroethics Working Group.
- The third is related to the private sector with insights learned from one of our ongoing research projects at Emory geared at understanding processual roadblocks for cross-sectorial integration of neuroethics.

Neuroethics Roadblocks for Neurotech Innovators: Preliminary Findings
Dr. Karen S. Rommelfanger received her PhD in neuroscience and received postdoctoral training in neuroscience and neuroethics. Her research explores how evolving neuroscience and neurotechnologies challenge societal definitions of disease and medicine. Dr. Rommelfanger is an Associate Professor in the Departments of Neurology and Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, the Neuroethics Program Director at EmoryUniversity’s Center for Ethics, and Senior Associate Editor at the American Journal of Bioethics Neuroscience. She is dedicated to cross-cultural work in neuroethics is co-chair of the Neuroethics Workgroup of the International Brain Initiative.
