Questions of Ethics in Clinical Trials & The War in Ukraine – Part 1

Complimentary for DIA members, this global webinar series shares the clinical trial challenges in Ukraine and the region. Join us to create strategies for the future.


This webinar examines new ethical issues as they arise in the context of war and other natural and humanitarian disasters.

In collaboration with Ukraine Clinical Research Support Initiative (UCRSI)

The 2 Ethics Webinars in this series are designed to open up and address the ethics questions that arise in the context of clinical research in conflict situations, particularly in the situation of war in Ukraine. Most of the international guidelines we follow today have been developed against a background of ‘human experimentation’ in war situations or related to war situations (e.g., German, Japanese, UK experimentations during WWII, US 1950’s and 1960’s radiation experiments) as well experiments that were clearly unethical (e.g., Tuskegee). Thus, most of our fundamental guidances (Nuremburg, Helsinki, Belmont, CIOMS, and many of those built on these guidances) respond to protecting research participants from unethical research. The war in Ukraine presents an entirely different situation and thus a different background for the understanding clinical research during the war and indeed clinical research generally. The importance of this enterprise to patients, to medicine, to public health, to science, and to the economy of a nation needs to be appreciated. It is imperative that we revisit the questions of ethics with regard to research that has demonstrated an essential value for these societies.

This Webinar will be one hour in length followed by 30 minutes of member discussion where we welcome our attendees to turn on their camera, unmute their microphones, and share their thoughts/ask questions. We hope you can join the conversation about this important topic.

In response to the rapidly evolving crisis in Ukraine and surrounding areas, DIA is offering this complimentary webinar to address ongoing uncertainty for both industry professionals and study participants in need. This session focuses on ethical considerations to prioritize, support, and protect study participants who have been impacted, and how to achieve the continuation/completion of clinical trials.
