Bethesda, Md—New moves are coming to protect human research subjects. Greg Koski, PhD, newly appointed director of the Office of Human Research Protection, has put clinical researchers on notice that if they fail to ensure that participants in their studies are properly protected, they will be put out of business. Since he has just taken on the job, Koski was not able to spell out how this mandate might be implemented, but his intention was clear. (The office he heads was recently transferred from the National Institutes of Health, where it was called the Office for Protection From Research Risks, to the Department of Health and Human Services [DHHS].)
