The Good, Bad and Ugly of Biomedical Research 

Session Outline: In 2009, the Lancet published an article by Iain Chalmers and Paul Glasziou that made the astounding claim that of the 100 billion dollars spent on biomedical research each year, 85% is wasted. Much of this waste is avoidable. This short session describes the stages of research waste in the context of the ethical issues that arise, and what Human Research Ethics Committees can do to help reduce research waste.
