CLTR-500 Research Ethics with Human Subjects
Fall for 2017-2018
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

CLTR-500-01 Research Ethics with Human Subjects
Fall for 2017-2018
Faculty:
This 3-credit course is designed around two key learning goals: 1) to become familiar with an ethical decision-making procedure widely employed in biomedical research ethics; and 2) to learn about both the CTSA competencies for RCR and the nine areas that the National Institutes of Health have identified as representing the key elements of training in RCR. The responsible conductor of research can: 1. identify; 2. analyze, and 3. respond to the analysis of ethical issues that are intrinsic to biomedical science. Therefore, in this course, you will be required to consider the role of “responsible conduct of research” in your own work and collaborations – and to consider the purpose of this training for you, your colleagues, and your mentees.
