Led by Steven Joffe MD, MPH, researchers in the Joffe Research Program are addressing the ethical challenges that arise during the design and conduct of biomedical research, including clinical trials and genomic research in both adult and pediatric settings. The long-term goal of the research is to provide guidance and create an ethical framework for clinicians and researchers seeking to conduct human subjects research in accordance with the highest ethical standards.
