This course consists of a study of the ethical principles and related federal and state laws that govern scientific research. Through a combination of on-line self-studies, in class lectures with case study discussions, students learn both the substance and application of ethical principles and related laws to scientific research. Topics addressed include research misconduct, conflicts of interest in research, data management, animal subjects research, human subjects research, collaboration, mentoring, publication, authorship, social responsibility, stem cell research, biosecurity, and whistleblowing. The grade awarded to a student is based on the student's performance on an online (Blackboard) multiple choice midterm examination and an online (Blackboard) multiple choice final examination. The grade awarded will be Progress/No progress. The minimum score required to pass the course is 70, calculated as an average of the scores achieved on the midterm and final examinations. (hybrid, lecture independent)
