Bioethics program director Robert Klitzman continues to receive praise for his newly published book, The Ethics Police?: The Struggle to Make Human Research Safe (Oxford University Press).
William A. Frosch, a professor emeritus and psychiatrist based out of Weil Cornell Medical College wrote the review in the highly regarded FASEB (Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology) Journal. Like previous reviewers, he says that the book is particularly timely in its examination of institutional review boards, or IRBs:
“This is an important book. It should serve as the beginning of continuing study of the ethics of research on human subjects. Every member of an IRB, every investigator who uses human subjects, and all the rest of us who are concerned with the continued progress of essential medical research should obtain and read it.”
