Science on myself

A public history of science event exploring the history and ethics of self-experimentation


Explore the history and ethics of self-experimentation in medicine

William Alexander believed that self-experimentation contributed to the benefit of mankind, but how far would you go in search of scientific truth?

Considered risky by some and essential by others, self-experimentation has a long history in medical science. Emerging in the scientific revolution, self-experimentation became increasingly popular towards the early 20th century. From cardiology to pharmacology, there are countless examples of scientists using themselves as guinea pigs in search of answers.

Join us as we explore what motivated the practice, what was achieved through it, and what the ethical implications were.
