Description
 
 
You may have heard of the Nuremberg Code that was developed after the Second World War to ensure the responsible treatment of human subjects in the medical field. But it is not just in the medical disciplines that legal and ethical responsibilities are important for a researcher. If you are doing any research involving human subjects, you have to apply for Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval with the help of your research director. And it is not enough to just fulfill requirements: doing your research responsibly also increases the quality of your work. Responsibility in research involves a wide range of issues including cultural sensitivity, plagiarism, proper use of privileged information, maintaining the integrity of data, understanding issues about ownership of and access to data, knowing how to store and secure data, understanding issues like conflict of interest, and being trained to properly handle animals if you are working with animals in your lab. To improve your knowledge and expertise as a researcher, utilize the events and resources below.
