Five years since report on human research regulation



In 2008 the Academy embarked on a comprehensive review of UK regulation of health research involving human participants, their tissue or their data.

Chaired by Professor Michael Rawlins FMedSci, the review resulted in a milestone report in 2011 which paved the way for significant changes in the way human research is regulated in the UK, including the establishment of a new regulatory body, the Health Research Authority.

In the first of the new series of vodcasts, called Academy Perspectives, Professor Sir Robert Lechler, President of the Academy of Medical Sciences reflects on the last five years and looks forward to an upcoming Academy meeting that will evaluate progress in the area.
