We cannot be silent.

The Multi-Regional Clinical Trials Center is committed to supporting social justice, diversity, inclusion, and respect for others. We stand in solidarity with our Black colleagues and communities of color, and those affected by violence. We strive to improve diverse representation in clinical research and health equity. We will not be bystanders. We are listening, we are learning, and we are working to eliminate racism and bigotry. The MRCT Center’s work in bioethics seeks to sort right from wrong, to protect the vulnerable, and to advance an agenda that assists everyone, across the nation and the world. The foundation of an ethical society is justice.


The MRCT Center and Harvard Catalyst collaborated on a series of COVID-19 general clinical research — “ Should I join” — flyers to prepare potential clinical trial participants (patients, friends/family members, parents/guardians, + children for recruitment + consent.
