Research Integrity Series & Biomedical Ethics Seminar Series


Event Synposis: Dr. Rothstein will discuss how the Direct-to-Participant (DTP) research is a novel strategy using the internet to recruit, consent, and enroll individuals. This technique is especially valuable for research on rare disorders. It can be more expeditious, generate more representative and diverse samples, be more participatory and democratic, and lead to discoveries of greater relevance for heterogeneous populations. The main impediments stem from legal, ethical, and cultural concerns about possible exploitation by foreign researchers. This talk will address whether it is possible to use DTP research in a legal and ethical manner around the world.

Light refreshments will be provided.
