David J. Rothman, Ph.D., and David H. Strauss, M.D., of the New York State Psychiatric Institute co-directed this course on clinical research ethics through a grant from the NIH. The program was designed for Clinical Investigators and Institutional Review Board Members involved in research with human subjects and its oversight.
