Research Ethics Grand Rounds.
Annette Rid, King’s College.
The 2014 Ebola epidemic in west Africa is the most severe and largest documented to date. It is also the first epidemic in which the use of experimental vaccines and specific treatments for Ebola was endorsed at an early stage. Annette Rid draws lessons from Ebola for conducting clinical research during an epidemic, with a particular focus on the role of research in the humanitarian response and trial design.
