World Medical Association's Declaration of Helsinki Revised in October 2013

Jan 31, 2014

The World Medical Association’s Declaration of Helsinki sets forth principles for the ethical conduct of biomedical research by physicians involving human subjects around the globe.  It was originally adopted in 1964 and has been updated periodically, most recently in October 2013.  The Declaration of Helsinki is one of the landmark documents (others include the Nuremberg Code and the Belmont Report) with which today’s biomedical researchers should be familiar to ensure the ethical conduct of biomedical research involving human subjects.
