Virtual Event
Ethical Considerations in Research for Pediatric Populations
13 Sep 2022



There is an urgent need for new drugs and treatments to address a range of illnesses in infants, children, and adolescents, yet including these vulnerable populations in clinical research raises a number of ethical issues that are important to address. This event will explore key ethical considerations regarding the research participation of those who have not attained the legal age for consent to treatments or procedures involved in biomedical studies. Discussions will center on addressing consent, assent, and privacy in pediatric research, study design and regulatory issues, small sample size studies in genomics and rare disease research, health disparities, Covid-19 research in children, broad population-based disease prevention efforts, and will close with a look to the future of pediatric research.
