Research involving the dead has not been regulated, and little, if any, institutional oversight has been provided.

The University of Pittsburgh instituted a mechanism for oversight of such research in June 2002. In this article, we report the experience of that oversight body, the Committee for Oversight of Research Involving the Dead (CORID), during its first 18 months.
