Law and the use of living biological tissues for research and experimental purposes
Languages of publication
This paper focuses on the legal issues related to creation of hybrid robots that utilize living neural tissues and embed them into robotic devices. Its aim is to identify possibilities and limitations of creating these semi-living robots with regard to the legal regulation of use of living biological tissues for research and experimental purposes. The paper analyzes the international law, the EU law and the Czech law. It concludes that the Czech law does not provide clear conditions for using animal neural tissues for creating a hybrid robot.
