Welcome to Suffocated Science. This is a forum for scientists and scholars who are troubled by today’s system of ethics review. Here you can find information and perhaps a measure of solace. If you’d like to write a guest post, please let me know.
We also welcome conscientious IRB members. All of us, no matter what role we play in today’s system, know that it is not what it should be.
If you are an IRB member who wants to learn more about how to conduct appropriate ethics review, please see the sister website, http://balancedethicsreview.com. It is directed specifically at your concerns.
