Scientific Integrity in the Practice of Molecular Biology

Abby Notterman

This course satisfies the mandate of the National Institutes of Health for training of molecular biologists in the ethical practice of science. The nature of -- and response to -- personal "misconduct" will be a principle focus. Through case studies and class discussion, we will examine the societal framework for the public support of basic biomedical research, the rights and responsibilities of students and mentors in the conduct of that research, and the significance of intellectual property. We will also review regulations concerning research with human subjects and animals.
