Description

This is a comprehensive introduction to the ethical issues at stake in the conduct of biomedical research, with extensive use of case examples. Its content parallels the recommendations of the Commission on Research Integrity, and deals with ethical issues in the use of animal and humans in research. It includes chapters on intellectual property, authorship, peer review, and conflicts of interest. As of October 2000, all personnel involved in research supported by the Public Health Service, including NIH, must receive the equivalent of 15 hours of training and education in research ethics. This book will be a convenient text for such short courses or seminars, and an excellent guidebook for all.show more
