Abstract

For over a century the U.S. military has conducted and sponsored cutting-edge medical and technological research. While such projects have often resulted in transformative innovations, in a number of instances, researchers have deliberately violated legal requirements and/or ethical norms governing research with human subjects. This article explores these matters by discussing the history of misfeasance in military research and examining contemporary military endeavors that aim to exploit biomedical advancements.

Keywords: Human subjects research, national security, military medicine, medical ethics, human enhancement
