Ethics in Pediatric Research

Recent progress in the understanding of human disease has led to an explosion in the number of new medicines and therapeutics available for adults — however, significantly fewer drugs are developed and evaluated specifically for children due to complex ethical and logistical issues. Listen to this podcast addressing topics on how to provide children with evidence-based treatments while protecting them from inappropriate research.

This podcast highlights discussions from the Ethical Considerations in Research for Pediatric Populations symposium presented by the New York Academy of Sciences and NYU Grossman School of Medicine, and is made available thanks to funding provided by Johnson & Johnson. Click here to watch a recorded version of the full conference, available on demand until September 13, 2023.
