What is People & Perspectives?

People & Perspectives (P&P) is a digital story-telling library supported by PRIM&R (Public Responsibility in Medicine & Research).
Anyone who is part of the human subjects or animal care and use enterprise is welcome to contribute, and past narrators (the person providing the story) have included institutional review board (IRB) and institutional animal care and use (IACUC) professionals, research staff, committee members, institutional officials, researchers, subjects, advocates, regulators, industry representatives, ethicists. Since P&P is comprised of the personal recollections and interpretations of those working in the research field, it is therefore not intended to serve as an official record of the events described. Read more.
