Clinical Research Ethics Consultation Collaborative

Mission & Major Initiatives


Our mission is to share practices and experiences related to clinical research ethics consultation, to enhance understanding of the complex ethical dilemmas that emerge with advancing translational science, and to improve the quality of clinical research ethics consult advice.

Major Initiatives

  • Conduct quarterly case webinars where a research ethics consultation is presented retrospectively and discussed.
  • Publish two cases, each with three commentaries, every 6 months in the American Journal of Bioethics based on our quarterly case presentations.
  • Participate in collaborative consults where members engage around in-progress consult discussions.
  • Contribute cases to a research ethics consult repository.
