Big Data and Research Ethics: Reflections on The Petrie-Flom Center’s Conference, “Big Data, Health Law, and Bioethics”

In May, members of PRIM&R’s staff attended The Petrie-Flom Center’s Conference, “Big Data, Health Law, and Bioethics” at Harvard Law School. Several of the panel presentations addressed what the move towards big data means for the research ethics community. To recap the event for those unable to attend, we begin with a summary of some of the privacy concerns about big data, and then highlight several panel presentations that explored what these concerns mean for human subjects and IRBs.
