Article about GDPR and biomedical research
Dr Regina Becker, in charge of strategy development for ELIXIR-LU, recently wrote an article regarding GDPR and its impact on biomedical research. Entitled “Biomedical research: achieving transparency under the General Data Protection Regulation”, it was published in the September 2018 issue of Semper, a monthly magazine distributed in Luxembourg and targeting doctors, pharmacists and healthcare professionals.
The article reviews the challenges brought by the new law, detailing for example what information needs to be provided to study participants and how the data subjects also have to be informed continuously. The full text can be found in the online version of the magazine (p. 26 - 28).
