This chapter focuses on the regulation of Healthcare Research. If medicine is to progress to combat cancer and continue the battle against diseases such as diabetes and multiple sclerosis, new drugs and procedures must be subject to trials. But patients must not be used as a means to an end. We consider the role of Research Ethics Committees in balancing the risks and burdens of research and set out the law relating to consent, children, those lacking capacity and emergency research. Compensation is considered and we consider the legal response to research misconduct.
