From November 18-20, 2015, the Brocher Foundation in Hermance, Switzerland is hosting a workshop on Whistleblowers and the Exposure of Clinical Research Misconduct. The workshop will include analysis of the general phenomenon of whistleblowing in response to clinical research misconduct, consider what prompts particular individuals to engage in "whistleblowing" activities while others remain silent in the face of apparent wrongdoing, and explore particular examples of whistleblowing activity.  Confirmed speakers include Francoise Baylis, Charles Bosk, Lex Bouter, Raymond De Vries, Bernice Elger, Carl Elliott, Valerie Junod, Trudo Lemmens, Douglas Sipp, Erica Sutton, and Leigh Turner. Details concerning the workshop, a draft meeting agenda, and an online registration form are available on the Brocher Foundation website. There is no charge to attend this event. Seating is limited to a maximum of eighteen registered attendees.  Please register as soon as possible if you wish to attend.  Questions concerning the workshop should be directed to Leigh Turner at turne462@umn.edu.
