The Ethics Police?: The Struggle to Make Human Research Safe
Tuesday, April 28, 2015 06:00 PM to 07:30 PM
PLEASE NOTE NEW START TIME: 6:00PM.
Research on human beings saves countless lives, but has at times harmed the participants. Although in 1974, the U.S. government established Intstitutional Review Boards (IRBs) to oversee research on humans, ethics violations persist.
How do these secretive IRBs operate? To what extent should government regulate science and how?
Robert L. Klitzman is a professor of psychiatry in the College of Physicians and Surgeons and the Joseph Mailman School of Public Health and the director of the Masters of Bioethics Program at Columbia University. He is the author of The Ethics Police?: The Struggle to Make Human Research Safe.
Public Affairs Director Joanne Myers will lead the conversation.
