Pregnant people are often excluded from research without clear justification, even when there is little harm to the fetus in minimal‐risk research. In this issue of Ethics & Human Research, ob/gyn Amina White and colleagues survey current and former institutional review board personnel to find out their interpretations of “minimal risk” to identify factors that might influence IRB decisions to approve research with those who are pregnant. Also in this issue, an ethics review in the Covid‐19 era; designs for an observational toxicology study involving intoxicated patients; and an essay on making metrics meaningful in human research protection programs.
The Lundquist Institute (TLI) announced that it has received a generous $5 million, 5-year grant from the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) that will allow its PhD students, postdoctoral fellows and clinical fellows to pursue careers in stem cell biology and regenerative medicine. This award will also support the creation of a stem-cell focused program that will enable the Institute to recruit and train researchers in stem cell research while emphasizing its translational significance, underlying ethical considerations and keep the community updated on the technological advances in the field. The grant will also make it possible to retain stem cell researchers by providing access to the new and emerging companies based on The Lundquist campus.
