Introduces students to ethics concepts as they apply to questions and challenges in conducting human subject research. The aim is to increase students' knowledge and skills to recognize and consider ethical issues that arise in the conduct of human subject research. The course was designed for clinical investigators in India who will likely collaborate with US investigators; it therefore includes a discussion of US and Indian regulatory requirements relevant to the conduct of collaborative research.
