AbstractThis course is designed to provide graduate students and postdoctoral associations with techniques to enhance both validity and responsible conduct in scientific practice. The course combines discussions about the practical steps for developing skills in scientific research with discussions of case studies and covers areas such as a study design, issues of authorship and peer review, use of humans and non-humans in research, allegations of misconduct, and intellectual property. This course also satisfies the training grant requirements of the NIH for education in the responsible conduct of research. The course web site includes a syllabus, reading list, assignment, and lecture notes. Access to this material is provided through MIT OpenCourseware.
