In this fourth installment of “More Than Meets the IRB,” Robert J. Levine (MD, Professor of Medicine and Lecturer in Pharmacology at Yale University, Director of the Law, Policy and Ethics Core of the Center for Interdisciplinary Research on AIDS, and Chair of the Executive Committee of the Interdisciplinary Center for Bioethics) talks with us about the history and application of “component analysis.” Topics include basic definitions of component analysis, how this key concept became part of the basic framework of human research ethics, and ways it can be applied in the Institutional Review Board process. We also touch on the difference between research and practice, and how this distinction appears in the Declaration of Helsinki and the Belmont Report. (20:39).
