This chapter reviews the legal and ethical issues arising from the research use of human biospecimens, including those articulated in the context of court cases involving disputes between specimen contributors, researchers, and institutions, and those expressed by members of the public in surveys on the topic. The chapter contends that proposed changes to the Common Rule are inadequate to resolve the legal and ethical concerns that have been raised with respect to the use of biospecimens. It argues that there is a need to distinguish between the dual roles — subject and donor — played by contributors of biospecimens.
