Ethics & Patients in Research

Date and Time: 

October 6, 2020

at 5:00 pm–7:00 pm



Event Description

A defining characteristic of translational research is collaboration is an important aspect of health science innovation. When trying to improve people’s health, we need to work with the peoples’ whose health we’re trying to improve. Although this seems self-evident and simple, it is not done as often as it should. How do we do better?

Join TR talks this week as we discuss the nature of effective collaboration with patients, in translational research and the barriers to making it a reality.
