Tackling Ethical Questions in Clinical Research and Drug Development

June 5, 2018

Navigating ethical challenges is in the job description of anyone who works in clinical research and drug development. In the May 2018 issue of Therapeutic Innovation & Regulatory Science, a group of experts in research ethics published a special section on this topic, taking a closer look at four distinct aspects of clinical research that raise ethical questions for drug development teams. Dr. Lindsay McNair, Chief Medical Officer at the WIRB-Copernicus Group and co-author and editor of the special section discusses the findings and the standards we might need to revisit.
