Michigan State University Bioethics Brownbag & Webinar Series:
"Are Researchers Ever Obligated to Provide Individual Research Findings to
Non-participant Third Parties?"

A consensus is emerging that, in some circumstances, researchers have
obligations to return individual research results to research participants.
Recent methodological advances in genetics research suggest that researchers
will increasingly uncover potentially pathogenic, actionable information
relevant to individuals, such as family members of participants, who never
involved themselves in research. Are investigators ever obligated to provide
findings to these non-participant third parties? What could explain such
obligations?

Allan Loup, JD, is a Regulatory Affairs Specialist at the University of
Michigan Medical School.
