We’re only a week away from the 2015 Social, Behavioral, and Educational Research Conference and the 2015 Advancing Ethical Research Conference, so here’s a look back at a compelling moment from a previous conference. Read on for this week’s Time Capsule Tuesday.
Conference: Changes and Choices for IRBs: The Inclusion of Women and Minorities, and Other Emerging Issues in Research, October 1994
Session: Risk Assessment
Panelist: Benjamin Freedman, George Demetri, Marcia Angell
