Friday Talk: Statisticians & the Conduct of Ethical Research


NIH biostatician Lisa Meier McShane will examine a scandalous 2008 case of cancernresearch gone wrong—partly brought to light by a GU grad (Brad Perez '05)—in an intimate discussion of the role statisticians may play in the conduct of ethical research.

You can learn more about the specific case here, and learn more about it and similar cases in this IOM report.

Selected talks from our Friday Cookies & Bioethics series are available in podcast form online and via iTunes.
