Let me just say thank you to all of our speakers, all the members of the public who participated in this. You have shared your time, your energy, your expertise and we have received a lot of valuable comments.

I just want to conclude by saying that the President’s charge to us to assure him that current rules and international standards adequately guard the health and well-being of participants in scientific studies funded by the federal government demands that we consider basic ethical principles following careful deliberations and evidence gathering. With the discussion, we are well on our way. Thank you again for joining us. Thank you very much.
