Human challenge studies have seen historical use but raise a number of ethical questions of interest. This panel will discuss a number of questions concerning the ethics of such studies, such as: Under what conditions are they appropriate? Are they ever ethically preferable as a research design? Are there upper limits of risk that we can ask participants to incur for the purposes of research?
