This course has two objectives. One objective is to provide students with the opportunity to learn about various topics in applied life sciences by attending research talks at KGI. Students will be involved in the planning and coordination of these talks to ensure they are relevant to their PhD research. Another objective of this course is to engage researchers in reading about, considering, and discussing the responsible conduct of science. Ph.D. students are required to take the online ethics course as one of the requirements to pass the courses described under KGI’s Office of Research and Sponsored Projects. Topics include data acquisition and management, mentoring and collaboration, collaboration between Academia and private industry, authorship, publication and peer review, misconduct in research, conflicts of Interest and scientific objectivity, animal and human subjects, and whistleblowing. This course helps to ensure that NIH and NSF requirements are met for training in the responsible conduct of research.
