    Scandals, Ethics, and Regulatory Change in Biomedical Research.Adam Hedgecoe - 2017 - Science, Technology, and Human Values 42 (4):577-599.
    This paper explores how a particular form of regulation—prior ethical review of research—developed over time in a specific context, testing the claims of standard explanations for such change against more recent theoretical approaches to institutional changes, which emphasize the role of gradual change. To makes its case, this paper draws on archival and interview material focusing on the research ethics review system in the UK National Health Service. Key insights center on the minimal role scandals play in shaping changes in (...)

    Ethical Boundary Work: Geneticization, Philosophy and the Social Sciences.Adam M. Hedgecoe - 2001 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 4 (3):305-309.
    This paper is a response to Henk ten Have's Genetics and Culture: The Geneticization thesis . In it, I refute Ten Have's suggestion that geneticization is not the sort of process that can be measured and commented on in terms of empirical evidence,even if he is correct in suggesting that it should be seen as part of ‘philosophical discourse’. At the end, I relate this discussion to broader debates within bioethics between the social science and philosophy, and suggest the need (...)

    Context, Ethics and Pharmacogenetics.Adam M. Hedgecoe - 2006 - Studies in History and Philosophy of Science Part C: Studies in History and Philosophy of Biological and Biomedical Sciences 37 (3):566-582.
    Most of the literature on pharmacogenetics assumes that the main problems in implementing the technology will be institutional ones and that although it involves genetic testing, the ethical issues involved in pharmacogenetics are different from, even less than, ‘traditional’ genetic testing. Very little attention has been paid to how clinicians will accept this technology, their attitudes towards it and how it will affect clinical practice.This paper presents results from interviews with clinicians who are beginning to use pharmacogenetics and explores how (...)

    Context, Ethics and Pharmacogenetics.Adam M. Hedgecoe - 2004 - Studies in History and Philosophy of Biological and Biomedical Sciences 37 (3):566-582.
    Most of the literature on pharmacogenetics assumes that the main problems in implementing the technology will be institutional ones (due to funding or regulation) and that although it involves genetic testing, the ethical issues involved in pharmacogenetics are different from, even less than, ‘traditional’ genetic testing. Very little attention has been paid to how clinicians will accept this technology, their attitudes towards it and how it will affect clinical practice. -/- This paper presents results from interviews with clinicians who are (...)

    Genetic Databases and Pharmacogenetics: Introduction.Richard E. Ashcroft & Adam M. Hedgecoe - 2004 - Studies in History and Philosophy of Biological and Biomedical Sciences 37 (3):499-502.
    Since the inception of the Human Genome Project, human genetics has frequently been conducted through big science projects, combining academic, state and industrial methods, interests and resources. The legitimacy of such projects has been linked to national prestige and images of the nation, the purity of scientific endeavour, the entrepreneurial spirit, medical progress and the public health. A key complication in these discourses is that large-scale genetic research has yet to show major results when considered in terms of the objectives (...)

  14. Terminology and the Construction of Scientific Disciplines: The Case of Pharmacogenomics.Adam M. Hedgecoe - 2003 - Science, Technology and Human Values 28 (4):513-537.
    This article explores the way in which social explanations underpin the names of particular disciplines. Taking the example of pharmacogenomics, it shows how this term has been constructed since it appeared in 1997, the differences and similarities between it and its precursor, pharmacogenetics, and the way in which commercial interests underpin this new term. Drawing on the idea of visions and the sociology of expectation, the article shows how different actors compete to have their preferred definitions of the term accepted (...)
