Title Experiment Perilous: Human Experimentation
Topics Description This excellent presentation provides an extensive history beginning with the first clinical trial. It covers in detail many of the most egregious periods in history of unethical experiments committed on humans. The history of the birth of scientific research regulations is explained. Furthermore, some of the motivations are explained as to why a researcher might be tempted to engage in unethical research behaviors. This presentation further addresses the moral and ethical responsibilities the investigator, and research staff has towards the research participant. The medical community must assure the safety and best interests on behalf of the research participant at all times.
