On July 28, 2023, Dr. Catherine E. Woteki, Ph.D., Chair of the Division on Earth and Life Studies at The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM), conveyed, on behalf of Dr. Marcia McNutt, Chair of the National Research Council, the appointment of Dr. Pham Huy Hieu. Dr. Pham, who is an Assistant Professor in the College of Engineering and Computer Science at VinUniversity cum Associate Director of the VinUni-Illinois Smart Health Center, has been selected as a member of the Workshop Committee for Engaging Scientists in Shared Responsible Innovation in Neuroscience in Southeast Asia. He will join and contribute efforts with a group of international scientists, specifically from the U.S., Malaysia, Vietnam, and other regions, to develop the agenda, invite potential participants, particularly the research community in Vietnam, and moderate workshop activities. With his expertise in computer science and medical imaging, Dr. Pham would provide a unique perspective, as one of the emerging areas of neuroscience is the convergence of computational and imaging approaches.

A Workshop Series on Engaging Scientists in Shared Responsible Innovation in Neuroscience in Southeast Asia

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) will convene an ad hoc planning committee of international scientists to develop a workshop to discuss practices for anticipating and countering malicious exploitation and accidental harmful use of current and future research in neuroscience.

Key Goals

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) will convene an ad hoc planning committee of international scientists to develop a workshop to discuss practices for anticipating and countering malicious exploitation and accidental harmful use of current and future research in neuroscience. The committee will engage early-career and established researchers of diverse genders, nationalities, and disciplines to engage in discussions that integrate core concepts of safety and security with current research activities and trends. The workshop will be informed by a bibliometric analysis of current research ongoing in Southeast Asia in neuroscience. The workshop will:

Goal 1 – Explore current and cutting-edge developments and applications (both beneficial and harmful uses) of neuroscience and brain-related research through a series of scenario-based exercises, which will be informed by the bibliometric analysis;

Goal 2 – Discuss responsible innovation, shared norms, and broader safety and security awareness including bio, cyber, data security practices relevant to neuroscience; and

Goal 3 – Discuss which identified responsible science practices are effective and translatable in different national and institutional contexts.

NASEM will prepare a rapporteur-prepared proceedings-in-brief based on the workshop discussions. The official announcement is made available at NASEM website.
