Ethics in Children's Environmental Health Research

On March 5 and 6, 2004, the CEHN held a “Workshop on Ethical Issues in Children’s Environmental Health Research.”  Five leaders in the field were asked to submit papers outlining the issues of:  


    • Research in pediatric environmental health (Bruce Lanphear),
    • Ethical Issues Unique to Children in environmental health research (Maura Ryan),
    • Community involvement (Peggy Shepard),
    • Relationship with industry and other funders (Richard Sharp), and
    • Privacy (Celia Fisher). 

Workshops were held discussing these 5 areas.  During 2005-2006, Six individual manuscripts combining the initial papers with input from the conference have been developed under the guidance of Cynthia Bearer, MD, PhD.  These have been accepted for publication as a mini monograph in Environmental Health Perspectives in October 2006.  They are now available on the EHP webpage. 


We thank the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the NIEHS Superfund Basic Research Center at the University of California, Berkeley, for their support for this effort.  We thank Jerry Paulson and Cynthia Bearer for their guidance and support in bringing this project to fruition.
