INTER 260 - RESPONSIBLE CONDUCT OF RESEARCH

[1 Credit]
This course illustrates the issues and dilemmas encountered by scientists conducting research. Using both presentations and case studies designed to foster class discussion, students will be required to use critical thinking as they integrate personal and professional ethical standards and apply them to the cases. Cases of scientific misconduct will be presented just as they appear in the NIH Guide and the headlines of the news. Students will work in small groups throughout the course. These small groups will also work together to prepare IRB protocols which will be peer- reviewed by faculty and by the rest of the class. These protocols will include human subjects, exempt protocols and use of animals.
