STREAM is a collaboration of researchers who share a common set of principles about the goals and methods for studying clinical translation. We apply empirical and philosophical tools for addressing scientific, ethical, and policy challenges in the development and translation of health technologies. Our members work in ethics, epidemiology, biology, psychology, and various medical specialties. The network is centered at McGill University, and has affiliates throughout North America.
On January 12th, the STREAM Workshop Series will be hosting Charles Weijer on “Ethical Considerations in Functional MRI Studies on Acutely Comatose Patients in the Intensive Care Unit”.
Spencer Hey will be speaking on “Methodological Heuristics in Early-Phase Clinical Research” at the Centre Interuniversitaire de Recherche sur la Science et la Technologie (CIRST) on January 23rd.
