Short-Term Courses in Research Ethics (T15)

Jump to:   [ List of Active Awards ]    [ List of Inactive Awards ]    [ Active T15 E-Mail Lists ]    [ Contacts ]

The objective of this program is to support the development, conduct, and evaluation of short-term courses on ethical issues in research, particularly research involving human participants.

The courses are intended to:

  1. improve the skills of biomedical, behavioral, nursing, social science, and public health researchers in identifying and addressing the ethical, legal, and social implications of their research and

  2. increase the number of researchers who have both awareness and skills in the ethical aspects of such research.

This program is supported by the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. It is being administered by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.

Please see the NIH Guide announcement for more information: Also see the Training in the Responsible Conduct of Research page.
