    Those who aim to advance health care with their research must also aim to understand the ethical and regulatory aspects of research. Research ethics is an essential element of good research practice.

    Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most inhumane.” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said this in 1955 and not much has changed since then. Crisis breeds innovation, but it should not always have to. Varied experiences, perspectives, and approaches are the real impetus for innovation, and we should encourage everyone to equip themselves with the knowledge and tools to improve the health of patients everywhere.
