    In Their Own Words: Research Misconduct From the Perspective of Researchers in Malaysian Universities.Angelina P. Olesen, Latifah Amin & Zurina Mahadi - 2018 - Science and Engineering Ethics 24 (6):1755-1776.
    Published data and studies on research misconduct, which focuses on researchers in Malaysia, is still lacking, therefore, we decided that this was an area for investigation. This study provides qualitative results for the examined issues through series of in-depth interviews with 21 researchers and lecturers in various universities in Malaysia. The aims of this study were to investigate the researchers’ opinions and perceptions regarding what they considered to be research misconduct, their experience with such misconduct, and the factors that contribute (...)

    Research Ethics: Researchers Consider How Best to Prevent Misconduct in Research in Malaysian Higher Learning Institutions Through Ethics Education.Angelina Patrick Olesen, Latifah Amin & Zurina Mahadi - 2019 - Science and Engineering Ethics 25 (4):1111-1124.
    The purpose of this study is to encourage and highlight discussion on how to improve the teaching of research ethics in institutions of higher education in Malaysia. Drawing on semi-structured interviews with 21 academics in a research-intensive university in Malaysia, interviewees agreed on the importance of emphasizing the subject of research ethics among students, as well as academics or researchers. This study reveals that participants felt that there is an urgent need to improve the current awareness and knowledge of issues (...)

    Attitudes Toward Pre-Implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) for Genetic Disorders Among Potential Users in Malaysia.Angelina Patrick Olesen, Siti Nurani Mohd Nor & Latifah Amin - 2016 - Science and Engineering Ethics 22 (1):133-146.
    While pre-implantation genetic diagnosis is available and legal in Malaysia, there is an ongoing controversy debate about its use. There are few studies available on individuals’ attitudes toward PGD, particularly among those who have a genetic disease, or whose children have a genetic disease. To the best of our knowledge, this is, in fact, the first study of its kind in Malaysia. We conducted in-depth interviews, using semi-structured questionnaires, with seven selected potential PGD users regarding their knowledge, attitudes and decisions (...)

    Current Status and Future Challenges of Biobank Research in Malaysia.Latifah Amin, Angelina Olesen, Zurina Mahadi & Maznah Ibrahim - 2021 - Asian Bioethics Review 13 (3):297-315.
    The establishment of MyCohort in 2005 showed that there is a growing interest on the part of the Malaysian government in the creation of biobanks in the country. This project can be considered as the biggest and most comprehensive cohort study in Malaysia, where hundreds of thousands of human samples are stored for epidemiological and biomedical research. However, little is known about the current issues or the situation related to biobank research in Malaysia. There are pressing issues that need answers (...)

    Public Perceptions of Ethical, Legal and Social Implications of Pre-Implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) in Malaysia.Anisah Che Ngah, Latifah Amin, Siti Mohd Nor & Angelina Olesen - 2017 - Science and Engineering Ethics 23 (6):1563-1580.
    Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis became well known in Malaysia after the birth of the first Malaysian ‘designer baby’, Yau Tak in 2004. Two years later, the Malaysian Medical Council implemented the first and only regulation on the use of Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis in this country. The birth of Yau Tak triggered a public outcry because PGD was used for non-medical sex selection thus, raising concerns about PGD and its implications for the society. This study aims to explore participants’ perceptions of the (...)

    The Integration and Harmonisation of Secular and Islamic Ethical Principles in Formulating Acceptable Ethical Guidelines for Modern Biotechnology in Malaysia.Nur Asmadayana Hasim, Latifah Amin, Zurina Mahadi, Nor Ashikin Mohamed Yusof, Anisah Che Ngah, Mashitoh Yaacob, Angelina Patrick Olesen & Azwira Abdul Aziz - 2020 - Science and Engineering Ethics 26 (3):1797-1825.
    The Malaysian government recognises the potential contribution of biotechnology to the national economy. However, ongoing controversy persists regarding its ethical status and no specific ethical guidelines have been published relating to its use. In developing such guidelines, it is important to identify the underlying principles that are acceptable to Malaysian society. This paper discusses the process of determining relevant secular and Islamic ethical principles and establishing their similarities before harmonising them. To achieve this, a series of focus group discussions were (...)

    Factors Influencing Stakeholders Attitudes Toward Genetically Modified Aedes Mosquito.Latifah Amin & Hasrizul Hashim - 2015 - Science and Engineering Ethics 21 (3):655-681.
    Dengue fever is a debilitating and infectious disease that could be life-threatening. It is caused by the dengue virus which affects millions of people in the tropical area. Currently, there is no cure for the disease as there is no vaccine available. Thus, prevention of the vector population using conventional methods is by far the main strategy but has been found ineffective. A genetically modified mosquito is among the favoured alternatives to curb dengue fever in Malaysia. Past studies have shown (...)
