The Past, Present, and Future of Human Experimentation: Research Ethics after Covid-19; chaired by Sally Davies
The rapid development of Covid-19 vaccines represents an unprecedented scientific and human achievement – one in which thousands of people put themselves on the research frontlines as experimental subjects. This panel will examine the historical, philosophical and legal backdrop to contemporary human experimentation, from the horrors of the Second World War to the Declaration of Helsinki. Are mainstream research ethics today up to the challenge of protecting human beings in the face of new biomedical innovations? How has private industry affected research standards and priorities? What impacts has the current regime had on countries from the global South?
