Stem Cell Research and Pay-to-Participate Trials

Stem Cell Research and Pay-to-Participate Trials

A live panel discussion about the value and perils of paid participation in stem cell research and clinical trials.

STEM CELLS Translational Medicine is hosting a free webinar on Stem Cell Research and Pay-to-Participate Trials to better address the growing concerns of clinical trial research and financial conflicts of interest. Typically, patients do not have to pay to participate in clinical trials; however, as research funding continues to shrink, the growth of pay-to-participate trials has increased. In this webinar, a panel of experts will discuss the benefits of this research funding model as well the potentials for misuse and ethical concerns.
