Sloan Kettering Controversies: Trust is the Public Foundation of Medical Research

Ann Mongoven writes on the ethical questions raised about medical research from the controversies at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

The controversies at Sloan underscore the importance of commonly endorsed ethical ideals and associated practices in medical research. They also raise questions about whether we need to develop new ethical practices as research becomes more technologically, socially, and institutionally complex.
