Prof. Wolf Publishes Article in Science on Sharing Data and Results with Research Participants

Professor Susan Wolf co-authored an article published in Science challenging a recent report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine that makes recommendations on how to share research results and data with people who agree to participate in research studies and calls for problematic changes to federal law. Wolf and co-author Barbara J. Evans of the University of Houston Law Center maintain that “the Academies’ report endorses the idea of participant access to results and data, but then builds daunting barriers” and that it “rejects widely supported, legally sound approaches” to returning results and data to research participants.
