Abstract

Amongst Professor Dickens’ extensive writings on medical law and medical jurisprudence are a host of distinguished contributions on the subject of the proper legal and ethical limits on human experimentation. As early as 1975, Professor Dickens was examining the legal aspects of human experimentation. A few years later he was promoting the responsibility of researchers to recognize and protect human rights in medical experimentation. In the last two decades, Professor Dickens has penned a rich flow of scholarly contributions on the legal and ethical rights and duties in medical experimentation and the need to do better as a research community. His articles have considered a broad range of issues in medical experimentation including the imperative of voluntary consent, the ethical unacceptability of co-ercion or inducement of research participants, embryonic research, epidemiological research and the protection of vulnerable research participants, particularly children.
