SBRI19006U Ethics in Translational Medicine I
BRIDGE - Translational Excellence Programme
- The basics of research ethics of studies involving human subjects and experimental animals (“Brush-up”)
- The basics of responsible conduct of science (“Brush-up”)
- Research ethics of translational research: “Does one size fit all?” (cross-cultural issues, e.g., academia vs. clinical setting vs. industry; international research)
- Research ethics of big data use in translational research
- Research ethics of gene modifications in translational research
- Research ethics of experimental animal use in translational research
On completion of the course, the participants should be able to:
- Discuss research ethics implications of basic/preclinical studies involving biological data, generated as part of “Omics” and similar “Big data” studies
- Discuss research ethics implications of basic/preclinical studies involving experimental animals
- Discuss research ethics implication of translational research involving diverse stakeholders, such as academic scientists, clinicians, industry, multi-partner collaborations, and multi-country collaborations
- Communicate research ethics issues related to big data and translational studies in a balanced and accessible manner
- Critically assess and discuss complex ethical issues
- Master dialogical methods that will support collaboration across fields in translational research
