Dr Carol Gray, ESRC Research Fellow, looks at research in pet patients in this month's Petconsent blog. There’s been a lot of news coverage of the volunteers who helped to test the three COVID vaccines that are being developed. People who put themselves forward as ‘guinea pigs’ for testing these new vaccines have been hailed as heroes. Each one of them took a risk. I’m sure they went through a very lengthy consent process, where a researcher talked them through all the possible risks of being injected with a vaccine that had undergone safety tests in the lab before being produced for use in volunteers.
