Regulating health research in the UK – promoting health research and protecting participants? 

Edward (Ted) Dove, Lecturer in Risk and Regulation at the School of Law, University of Edinburgh, and Deputy Director of the J Kenyon Mason Institute for Medicine, Life Sciences and Law
 
Seminar abstract
This seminar considers the interplay of risk and health research involving human participants, specifically through analysis of health research regulation, which historically comprises a mix of statutory regulation and other forms of normative instruments, as well as institutions, viz. research ethics committees (RECs). The focus will be on National Health Service (NHS) RECs in the United Kingdom, though this seminar will broaden somewhat the discussion to the US and EU contexts. We will first discuss the regulation of health research involving human participants, especially its nature and scope, and changes over time. Next, we will turn our attention to NHS RECs. Through analysis of key regulatory instruments and recently conducted empirical research in England and Scotland, this seminar will discuss the regulatory foundations of RECs, their functions, and the role of risk. In particular, we will consider how NHS RECs act amongst themselves and interact with other actors within the context of what may be called ‘next-generation’ regulation in the UK that aspires to both protect research participants from harm and also promote health research through streamlining perceived regulatory barriers. Ultimately, this seminar presents a study of the form and function of (one area of) regulation and of the experiences of those that impact and are impacted by it.
