Is research ethics regulation really killing people?Description
Overseeing the conduct of medical research is complex and time-consuming. In most countries, a significant part of this involves review by human research ethics committees (HRECs).
Some researchers argue that a significant part of this oversight by HRECs is unjustified, because it creates significant delays and costs, prevents some research, and can translate into potential harm to patients.
