Welcome to the NuGO Bioethics Guidelines Tool
The NuGO Bioethics Guidelines Tool supplies compiled information about
sensitive bioethical issues relevant for human nutritional sciences and nutrigenomics research. It
comprises important official documents, research examples, templates and
courses on bioethics throughout Europe. The most important part, however,
are the NuGO Guidelines which where specifically developed for
nutrigenomics scientists dealing with human studies.
If you want to know the background of the process of the development of the NuGO guidelines, please click on Background.
The tool is an interactive online program which will need also your input to tailor it to your needs. Therefore you will find on each page the 'Add information' button. There you can add examples, comments, hints to important documents, laws etc. We will regularly analyse the incoming information and up-date the tool.
We hope you will enjoy using the tool!
