APA Launches Committee on Human Research

John Mueller kindly alerted me to the formation of the American Psychological Association's Committee on Human Research, which met for the first time in March. The committee expects to work for the next 3-5 years on various issues, including, at the top of the list, "interpreting federal regulations for psychological research."

Among the committee members is Miriam F. Kelty, who, as an NIH psychologist, served on the staff of the National Commission for the Protection of Human Subjects of Biomedical and Behavioral Research in the 1970s.
