    Will international human rights subsume medical ethics? Intersections in the UNESCO Universal Bioethics Declaration.Thomas Alured Faunce - 2005 - Journal of Medical Ethics 31 (3):173-178.
    The professional regulatory system known as medical ethics has been one of the most visionary and socially valuable creations of the medical profession. Its beneficial influence has extended beyond physician/patient relations, to the shaping of many key humanistic and egalitarian features of the world’s legal and political institutions. The continued existence of medical ethics as a professionally influential normative system, however, is being challenged by international human rights. The UNESCO Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights, is likely to be (...)

    Normative Foundations of Technology Transfer and Transnational Benefit Principles in the UNESCO Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights.Thomas Alured Faunce & Hitoshi Nasu - 2009 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 34 (3):296-321.
    The United Nations Scientific, Education and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights (UDBHR) expresses in its title and substance a controversial linkage of two normative systems: international human rights law and bioethics. The UDBHR has the status of what is known as a ‘non-binding’ declaration under public international law. The UDBHR’s normative foundation within bioethics (and association, for example, with virtue-based or principlist bioethical theories) is more problematic. Nonetheless, the UDBHR contains socially important principles of technology (...)

    Three proposals for rewarding novel health technologies benefiting people living in poverty. A comparative analysis of prize funds, health impact funds and a cost-effectiveness/competitive tender treaty.Thomas Alured Faunce & Hitoshi Nasu - 2008 - Public Health Ethics 1 (2):146-153.

It focuses particularly on research and development prize funds, a health impact fund system and a multilateral treaty on health technology cost-effectiveness evaluation and competitive tender. (...)

    Integrated research into the nanoparticle-protein corona: A new multidisciplinary focus for safe, sustainable and equitable development of nanomedicines.Thomas Alured Faunce, John White & Klaus I. Matthaei - unknown
    Much contemporary nanotoxicology, nanotherapeutic and nanoregulatory research has been characterised by a focus on investigating how delivery of engineered nanoparticles (ENPs) to cells is dictated primarily by components of the ENP surface. An alternative model, some implications of which are discussed here, begins with fundamental physicochemical research into the interaction of a dynamic nanoparticle-protein corona (NPC) with biological systems. The proposed new model also requires, however, that any such fresh NPC physicochemical research approach should involve integration and targeted collaboration from (...)

    The UNESCO Bioethics Declaration ‘social responsibility ’ principle and cost-effectiveness price evaluations for essential medicines.Thomas Alured Faunce - 2005 - Monash Bioethics Review 24 (3):10-19.
    The United Nations Scientific, Education and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) has commenced drafting a Universal Bioethics Declaration. Some in the relevant UNESCO drafting committee have previously desired to restrict its content to general principles concerning the application (but not necessarily the goals) of science and technology. As potentially a crucial agenda-setting statement of global bioethics, however, it is arguably important the Universal Bioethics Declaration transparently address major bioethical dilemmas in the field of public health, such as universal access to affordable, essential (...)
