The Conduct of Clinical Trials of Treatments during Public Health Emergencies
Feb. 9, 2018: Health Policy and Bioethics Consortium
12:30 - 2 p.m.
In the past several years, the United States has struggled to respond to viral outbreaks, such as Ebola and Zika. There is now an awareness of the need to rapidly develop vaccines and treatments for epidemics that can quickly spread from country to country. But questions remain as how to best conduct clinical trials and development of vaccines in the context of an epidemic or outbreak.
Join two health policy experts in examining the appropriate conduct of clinical trials during public health emergencies.
