CAN WE TRUST THE PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES?
We all take medicines from time to time and occasionally we need powerful and risky medication. Can we be sure that we are getting the least risky and most effective medication, that our doctor’s judgement rests on sound evidence and has not been improperly influenced by the drug companies in pursuit of profit? Can we be sure our medicine has been properly tested after trials conducted ethically?
The Centre for Social Ethics and Policy invites you to a seminar led by Shalni Arora of Transparency International and a panel including Professor Nalin Thakkar, Associate Vice-President for Research Integrity, and Professor Nicola Glover-Thomas on Wednesday October 8th at 2.00 pm in Room G.03 of the Williamson Building.
