    00:00 So as a result of this lecture, you now know the importance of some key historical landmarks in medical research ethics, the Nuremberg code, the Declaration of Helsinki, the Belmont report and the HIPAA. You also know about the importance of informed consent, which is probably the foundational idea that underlines all medical research ethics. You know about beneficence as well and non-maleficence and justice and trying to act in the best interest of the patient and the research subject at all times. And you also know the role of Research Ethics Bboards, or whatever it is that your institution calls the people that oversee whether or not a project that you're involved in, meets ethical standards. This has been the last lecture in our epidemiology series and hopefully you agree with me that epidemiology is an exciting and expanding modern medical science. It also empowers you to conduct your own research if you want to. Even if you don't want to be a researcher, the skills that you now have allow you to assess the quality of medical literature. You can read a paper now that someone else has written about their research and look for bias, look for the strength of associations, look for whether or not they have made faulty conclusions and maybe make recommendations about what to do next in their research. I think as a result of learning epidemiology, you're now a smarter person and better informed individual and probably a much better scientist.

    01:18 Thank you.
