This session will define and offer examples of scientific misconduct. In addition, it will provide an overview of the institutions and groups that oversee scientific research, such as the Office of Research Integrity on a national level, as well as those here at DFCI. We will identify characteristics of an ethical scientist and what some of the contemporary ethical issues are in biomedical research today.
Successful completion of this course will fulfill 1 out of the 6 required in-person RCR lectures for 2021. A certificate of completion will be emailed to all attendees following receipt of the lecture evaluation.
