CLTR 500 - Research Ethics & Human Subjs.
This interactive case-based course explores ethical considerations and issues pertaining to scientific research, especially biomedical research with human subjects. Issues regarding scientific integrity, ethical research design and implementation, and research involving special populations are analyzed. Certification of training in the protection of human subjects is accomplished during progression through the material. The foundational principles of the Belmont Report underlying the responsible conduct of research are explored fully in the core content areas of human subjects, conflicts of interest and commitment, collaborative science, data acquisition, management, sharing, and ownership, publication practices and responsible authorship, mentor/trainee responsibilities, peer review, and research misconduct. The course is designed to help participants become comfortable with the language and literature of research ethics through the analysis stakeholder interests and perceptions using case studies presenting moral dilemmas in research ethics. This course is especially helpful to clinical investigators and members of Institutional Review Boards (IRB) as the application of federal regulations to particular cases is probed in depth
