First Published August 1, 2019; pp. 447–449
This symposium takes a critical look at the ethics of impact on “bystanders” to clinical research. By that we mean study non-participants who nevertheless are at risk of being affected by the study in some way. This introduction suggests some questions to consider while reading through the symposium contributions, and gives a précis of each.
