International perspectives on research ethics and scientific integrity: at home and abroad
MetadataShow full item record
The globalization of biomedical science has transformed collaboration in laboratory and clinical research and raised new challenges for US researchers' understanding of research ethics and scientific integrity. There are few universally accepted standards of responsible research practice and almost no worldwide regulation or oversight bodies governing research collaboration across national borders. Although English is widely used as the international language of biomedical science, the practical vocabulary of research integrity can still vary markedly among countries and cultures. This presentation will examine the growing diversity of research collaborations at home and abroad, the ethical questions that such collaborations may face, and recent efforts to define international practice standards and ethical norms for research in global health and biomedical science.
