A National Conference on Evolving Roles of Ethics Committees in India
(First Edition)
Championing Ethics for India…

The system of supervision of clinical trials by Ethics Committee has got well-established in our country by now. All the clinicians/research professionals involved in clinical trials have understood the system fairly well. At present, there are Institutional Ethics Committee and Independent Ethics Committees which are operational in the clinical trials ecosystem. However, it has been felt that the laws to regulate the role of Ethics Committees are in the nascent form in our country. As of now, DCGI has started registration of Ethics Committees, which is in the preliminary stage.

With the evolving needs of the Industry and the new Regulations guidelines, it is the time for the key stakeholders to prepare adequately for the road ahead. Such preparation shall ensure that the clinical research industry grows and matures steadily yet responsibly. With such an aspiration, AHERF is proud to champion the all important topic of "Ethics" through a national conference on evolving role of ethics committees in India. We believe firmly that such endeavors shall catalyze the welfare of the principal stakeholder 'the research subject' and the ultimate beneficiary 'the human race'.
