Research Integrity

Two major events, the Nuremberg War Crimes Trial during World War II and the Tuskegee Syphilis Study in the 1950s and 1960s, have forced the examination of ethical standards and the gradual agreement that potential human subjects need protection in scientific research. Over time the research establishment have created numerous policies to try and better protect the rights of research participants.
