In this presentation François-Joseph Lapointe will address the challenges of applying regulations and ethical guidelines to data generated in research-creation methods. Lapointe will first discuss his work as a co-principal investigator in the Responsible Conduct in Research Creation (RCRC) study which resulted in Toolkit for RCRC: Summary of Issues in Responsible Conduct in Research-Creation and Proposed Tools for Reflection (2018). Then, he will present the results of a survey that assessed practices of artists and academics engaged in bioart. While François-Joseph Lapointe’s scientific research focuses on phylogenetics, systematics and population genetics, his artistic work takes up issues in molecular biology and genetic models. His presentation will situate issues related to research conduct and regulation within the unique experiences of researchers who take up artistic methods. Specifically, it will describe the ethical challenges of practices involving living organisms.
