Grad 600: Research Ethics

Graduate School

Students are advised of their societal responsibilities as members of the scientific research community. This responsible conduct of research (RCR) course will introduce students to major ethical and policy issues in research. Priority will be given to those issues covered in the federal definition of "scientific misconduct" and in the NIH’s model curriculum on RCR. These issues include data fabrication, data falsification and plagiarism; responsible authorship, publication and mentorship practices; conflicts of interest; data management; and the use of human participants and animal subjects in research. As well, broader ethical issues in scientific research will be touched upon (i.e., the way science is funded and structured, and evolved social views regarding researchers’ responsibilities to both humans and animals involved in research).
