NOTE: This workshop is part of Virtual Summer Enrichment Program; the target audience is current high school and college students outside NIH. NIH Postbacs, Graduate students, and postdocs will NOT receive credit for this course.

Research Ethics is at the foundation of everything we do in the scientific endeavor, and training in Responsible Conduct of Research is an essential component of your development as a scientist as you train here at the NIH. The news is full of reports about scientific misconduct and its profound consequences. OITE is offering this course specifically for summer students to ensure that you have the foundation and information to conduct rigorous and ethical research during your time here and beyond.

This course will use lectures, group discussions, and case studies to explore the principles of research ethics.
