Launch of Bioethics Collaborative
The MRCT Center is launching a new initiative–the Bioethics Collaborative.
The MRCT Bioethics Collaborative is a forum to encourage the discussion of bioethical issues among stakeholders in global clinical trials for drug and device development. Our meetings will bring together scholars, executives, and scientists from academia and industry to share, define, study, and propose ethical frameworks for topics including human subject protections, biospecimens, and research integrity. We will look at real-life settings as well as develop approaches to address emerging and unanticipated issues as the pace of research continues to accelerate. The Collaborative will be a neutral forum to provide ethical guidance on global clinical trials concerns.
For more information, or if you are interested in joining the Bioethics Collaborative, please contact Rebecca Li at RLi@bwh.harvard.edu.
