Challenge Study Ethics


October 18, 2022

Challenge studies need to be highly regulated to ensure they are beneficial rather than harmful. I led a discussion with one of my colleagues about some of these ethical issues.

My colleague Savannah and I led a discussion on challenge study ethics at the seminar I coordinate (IDIG, the Infectious Disease Interest Group). The main topic was how to handle including unethical studies in systematic reviews, but we also discussed several other issues related to challenge studies. We only got through half of the powerpoint because we both love to talk, but the slides are embedded below or you can get them here if you’re interested.
