Hopkins Death Triggers Institutional Crisis

Last June, a volunteer participant in a federally funded experiment at Johns Hopkins Asthma and Allergy Center died after inhaling a chemical administered as part of the study.
PR NEWS spoke with Hopkins' Elaine Freeman, executive director of communications and public affairs, about the specifics. (Editor's Note: As of press time, Johns Hopkins faces a
new crisis. The federal agency that monitors research on humans has opened an investigation into a lead paint study held in the mid-'90s in which healthy children were recruited
to live in lead-contaminated houses in Baltimore.)
