NIH GUIDE, Volume 23, Number 15, April 15, 1994



National Academy of Sciences

Meeting Date:  June 6 and 7, 1994

The National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of

Engineering, and the Institute of Medicine are committed to bringing

matters of responsible conduct to the full attention of participants

in the scientific and engineering enterprise.  In pursuit of that

goal, the Academy complex will hold a major public convocation on the

conduct of science on June 6 and 7, 1994.  The meeting will review

progress made by government, universities, and other institutions in

addressing matters related to the conduct of science and engineering,

including the handling of allegations of misconduct and the creation

of educational programs for new and established investigators.  The

meeting will also examine next steps to ensure that the highest

standards of conduct in science are maintained.  Participants in the

convocation will include scientists and engineers, leaders of

professional societies, research and university administrators,

science educators, the media, and decisionmakers in the

Administration, Congress, and industry.

Previous studies by panels formed by the Institute of Medicine and

the Committee on Science, Engineering, and Public Policy have been

supported by the National Institutes of Health and other Federal

agencies, as well as private funds.  The current requirement for

instruction in the responsible conduct of research for trainees

supported by NIH-funded institutional research training grants

supports some of the recommendations from those panels.
