|Tuesday: 1st Annual Lecture on Biomedical Ethics Features NIH Expert|
|Monday, June 20 2011|
On Tuesday, June 21, URMC will welcome the National Institutes of Health's Franklin G. Miller, Ph.D., as a special guest lecturer. Miller's talk, titled "The Therapeutic Orientation to Clinical Trials," takes place from 1 to 2 p.m. in the Class of '62 Auditorium (G-9425). No registration is required.
Miller is a member of the senior faculty in NIH's Department of Bioethics, and a Special Expert of the National Institute of Mental Health's Intramural Research Program. His principal current research interest is examination of ethical issues in clinical research, including study design, informed consent, and the ways in which clinical research differs from medical care.
The talk is sponsored by the Office for Graduate Education and Postdoctoral Affairs.
As health care reform challenges us to expand health insurance to cover 30 million more Americans – and improve the quality and effectiveness of that care, all on a smaller dime – traditional industry arrangements will only go so far. We sat down with URMC Chief Operating Officer Peter Robinson to make sense of how reform’s new financial incentives are rewriting relationships among players.
