by on December 21, 2010

PHR’s recent report, “Experiments in Torture,” was selected as one of Discover Magazine’s “Top 100 Stories of 2010.”Ranked at #37, PHR’s work accompanies the recent discovery of an early diagnosis for Alzheimer’s and the BP oil spill as one of the most significant stories of 2010:
Doctors employed by the CIA participated in research and experimentation on prisoners at detainment centers such as Guant?namo Bay, Abu Ghraib, and Bagram air base that included waterboarding, stress positioning, and sleep deprivation, according to a June report from Physicians for Human Rights. The group says doctors violated ethical and legal protections, including the Nuremberg Code and the Common Rule regulating federal research on human subjects.
The full list can be found in the January-February special issue or online now.
