“A Few Observations about Conflicts of Interest in Research”

This lecture will cover several issues with regard to conflicts of interest in research, including how such conflicts affect research with biospecimens, the relevance of ownership rights to the biospecimens, and what prospective subjects in clinical research should be told about the financial interests of the investigator.
