I posted a series of cases that highlight challenges scientists face when conducting research with human participants.
To receive credit for the final project in the Responsible Conduct of Research course I invite students to comment on those or other cases on this blog. Add your comments under the case they pertain to. A thoughtful paragraph will suffice.
The three most recent cases focus on:
- A biobank established at Vanderbilt for genomics research
- The return of stored specimens to a Native American tribe who objected to their use for secondary research projects
- A case of research misconduct by a Harvard professor
If you join the dicsussion, please also send an e-mail to email@example.com saying that you have commented, so that you will receive credit for the course.
Also, let me know how you like the approach of commenting on a blog as an option for completing the course.
I look forward to your comments!
