After more than four years of work, the finish line appears to be in
sight for a governmentwide process to modernize the rules governing
human participation in medical trials. The results appear to offer
substantial benefits for many university researchers.

agencies dating to 2011. The document represents the first comprehensive
overhaul of the regulations in three decades.
