JHU Bioethics Institute receives PCORI pilot project award
Date:7/11/2012

"It is a testament to the commitments of PCORI that awards to identify best practices for patient-centered research will now include a project examining best practices for informed consent," says Ruth Faden, PhD, MPH, co-principal investigator and Director of the Berman Institute.
