Center for Science, Technology, and Environmental Policy
February 28, 2024 - 9:00 am CST
- 3:00 pm

Join interdisciplinary experts for a unique Research Ethics Day Conference focused on the topic of building partnerships with investigators, communities, clinical research professionals, and companies to promote the ethical conduct and translation of research. National leaders will discuss successes and challenges in a wide range of research programs. They will consider the elements of successful collaboration that promote research integrity, inclusivity, mutual respect, and accountability in the conduct of research.

As research teams become larger and more complex, forging effective partnerships to ensure the ethical conduct of research has become more challenging. Yet creating successful collaborations to ensure the responsible conduct of research is crucial at all stages of the research process. Researchers need to build a team that successfully integrates investigators, research staff, and trainees in the responsible conduct of research. They need to be able to partner respectfully in community-engaged and community-led research, building alliances to advance equity, inclusion, and cross-learning. And in creating relationships with funders and companies to develop and apply the research, researchers need to fulfill ethical duties including disclosure and managing conflicts of interest and commitment.
