Education & Training
Working with our partners at Indiana University, the Center and its faculty give leadership and provide opportunities for students, community members, and IU faculty and staff to gain practical and theoretical knowledge of bioethics. Training and educating innovative and effective translational researchers and staff requires helping them develop the ability to identify ethical challenges and address them, or get help. In recognition of the need for translational researchers to commit themselves to ethical conduct of research, the NIH requires trainees to receive education in the responsible conduct of research (RCR). BSAP provides RCR training for NIH trainees in a number of settings, for instance through a course offered each Fall term – G504, Research Ethics – that satisfies the didactic portion of the NIH requirement. Further, BSAP faculty help applicants for K-series grants formulate and then carry out extended training in RCR that spans the period of the award.
