Date and Time

When Henrietta Lacks went through treatment at Johns Hopkins Hospital in the early 1950s, neither the hospital nor the government had defined policies on the treatment of human subjects in research. Over the past 60 years, guidelines have been established to ensure that researchers follow three basic ethical principles: respect for persons, beneficence, and justice. This talk will discuss what we have learned from the atrocities that resulted from unregulated research on humans and the guidelines that researchers today must follow. Information on how USD reviews human subjects research protocols will also be presented.
