Anton and Rose Zverina Lecture by Susan Lederer, PhD., Henry K. Beecher’s Bombshell: “Ethics and Clinical Research” (1966) and Protecting Human Subjects of Biomedical Research
Friday, November, 11th, 6:30 pm (Reception), 7:00 pm (Presentation) - Sponsored by the Dittrick Museum of Medical History, Case Western Reserve University
Where: Allen Memorial Medical Library, Ford Auditorium, 11000 Euclid Ave, Cleveland, OH 44106 (Take public transportation to the Medical Library - bus, taxi, uber)
Professor Lederer delivered this compelling lecture as a keynote speaker at the American Association for the History of Medicine in Minneapolis this past Spring. As Lederer relates, in 1966 Henry K. Beecher, Harvard professor of anesthesia research, authored a powerful critique of mainstream medical research in the New England Journal of Medicine. Since World War II, Beecher claimed, a new cohort of investigators had entered the field, and were performing experiments on patients and healthy human subjects with little or no regard for their welfare and often without their knowledge and consent. Beecher’s “bombshell” energized both the American public and Congress to take a more aggressive stance toward medical researchers. Lederer’s paper explores the genesis and reception of Beecher’s critical engagement with biomedical ethics. I thought she conveyed a timely and important message that would find a receptive audience in Cleveland, and I hope you can join us for this important event.
Professor Lederer is the Robert Turell Professor and Department Chair of Medical History and Bioethics at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health.
