MIT Press recently published Human Subjects Research Regulation: Perspectives on the Future (2014), co-edited by Petrie-Flom Center Faculty Director, I. Glenn Cohen, and Executive Director, Holly Fernandez Lynch. This edited volume stems from the Center’s 2012 annual conference, which brought together leading experts in a conversation about whether and how the current system of human subjects research regulation in the U.S. ought to change to fit evolving trends, fill substantial gaps, and respond to identified shortcomings. 

This event provided a discussion of the book, pending efforts to amend federal research regulations, and some of the biggest unresolved questions in this space. 


  • I. Glenn Cohen, JD, Professor of Law and Faculty Director of the Petrie-Flom Center, Harvard Law School (co-editor)

  • Holly Fernandez Lynch, JD, MBioethics, Executive Director of the Petrie-Flom Center (co-editor)
