Announcement #2: Virtual Conference

"Ethical Considerations in Research for Pediatric Populations"


There is an urgent need for new drugs and treatments to address a range of illnesses in infants, children, and adolescents, yet including these vulnerable populations in clinical research raises a number of ethical issues that are important to address. This event will explore key ethical considerations regarding the research participation of those who have not attained the legal age for consent to treatments or procedures involved in biomedical studies. Discussions will center on addressing consent, assent, and privacy in pediatric research, study design and regulatory issues, small sample size studies in genomics and rare disease research, health disparities, Covid-19 research in children, broad population-based disease prevention efforts, and will close with a look to the future of pediatric research.

The UofL Office of Research Integrity is responsible for the education and training in the responsible conduct of research, coordinating the implementation of this effort with departments and units within the university, with the objective of ensuring that the responsible conduct of research is maintained at a high priority level in all aspects of research activities. 

We can assist you with the following researcher activities: 

UofL follows the federal definition of research misconduct, which includes the fabrication, falsification or plagiarism in proposing, performing or reviewing research, or in reporting research results.

  • Fabrication is making up data or results and recording or reporting them.
  • Falsification is manipulating research materials, equipment, or processes, or changing or omitting data or results such that the research is not accurately represented in the research record.
  • Plagiarism is the appropriation of another person's ideas, processes, results, or words without giving appropriate credit. Plagiarism also means substantial unattributed copying of another's ideas, processes, results, or words.
  • Substantial unattributed copying of another's ideas, processes, results, or words means the unattributed verbatim copying of sentences and paragraphs, style or structure which materially mislead the audience regarding the contributions of the author.
  • Plagiarism does not include authorship or credit disputes, including those among former collaborators who have gone their separate ways but may make use of commonly developed concepts, methods, descriptive language, or other products of the former joint effort.

Research misconduct does not include honest error or differences of opinion.
