Public Interest in Human Health Research
From Elisabeth Barlow
Liminal Spaces was a six-year Wellcome-funded project at Edinburgh Law School, which scrutinised regulatory systems that support human health research. The vision of the project was to deliver the first-ever integrated, interdisciplinary and crosscutting analysis of health research regulation by confronting the gaps between documented law, relevant ethical and social theories and concepts, and research practice.
To mark the end of the project in March 2021, the principal investigator, Prof Graeme Laurie, sat down with members of the Liminal Spaces team to discuss their research findings.
In this episode, Prof Laurie speaks with Annie Sorbie about the role of public interest in human health research regulation.
