Ethics in Epidemiologic Research (data sharing revisited)
This session, funded by the Wellcome Trust, hopes to spur a discussion on important questions such as: Who does population data belong to? Do epidemiologists have an obligation to reduce (or at least not create) inequalities in data access? How can the academic+B1 community reward researchers who reduce such inequalities? What does open access to data mean for confidentiality of study participants? Is “data sharing” widening the gap between those who collect data (many of whom from LMICs) and those who analyze data (mostly from high-income countries)?
