Should Patients Be Allowed to "Pay to Play" in Clinical Research?
SC CTSI Research Ethics Forum

12:00 PM-1:00 PM

NRT LG 503/504

With the greater difficulty that investigators face in finding funding for biomedical research, is it time to allow research
institutions to charge patients who want to participate in clinical trials? Would that support trials that might not otherwise be conducted or would it undermine research integrity and distort the selection of subjects?
