IRB Critique

Identify published or proposed research that you think raises an interesting issue about research involving human subjects.  
Post the abstract of the research to the class mailing list by Sunday night, Oct 1. 

Since we won’t have time to deal with all of them in class, we’ll identify the two that look most interesting. The winners (?) of this vote should come to class prepared to lead a 15 minute discussion of their case. Provide a brief summary of the research, so that the class knows what the issues are. We’ll discuss how the research exposes human subjects to risk and what to do about it.
