My research is all about trying to figure out ways to prevent people from becoming ill. We don’t do any experiments or invent any drugs or anything, so yes, I would definitely stop if I thought any of my research might be a threat to living things.
Do you mean would I stop doing my work if I thought the outcome of my research would cause harm to other living things?
I don’t think that’s likely to happen. I hope that my work will one day lead to the development of new cancer treatments, and I don’t see how that would harm other living things.
But if I were in the situation where I knew my research was going to cause harm, then of course I would stop doing it.
