Speaker:

Dr. C.S. Pramesh

Abstract:

The COVID-19 pandemic has spread to all countries of the world. With over 11 million people infected worldwide and over half a million deaths, it is a public health emergency. Justifiably, researchers globally have scrambled together a large volume of research addressed at various aspects of the disease including it's treatment. Desperate situations call for desperate solutions; however, compromising standards of therapeutic research could result in serious harm. In this talk, Dr. Pramesh will describe how the tenets of evidence-based medicine have been frequently violated, and warns against accepting diminished standards of biomedical research into the pandemic.
