|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.
AIf you want to know more about health care reform, here’s a simple suggestion: Grab a cup of coffee with someone in IT.
See, reform can’t happen on paper. Its ideas are too lofty, too complex. They’re only achievable with smart technologies—and such infrastructure only gets built if a small army of really smart people scramble to help bring the vision to fruit.
