Ethics and compliance are both integral components of Virginia Tech’s ability to conduct innovative and impactful research. While compliance is following the law, ethical decision-making is the process of making decisions that are consistent with professional values and ethical norms. This half-day webinar will cover the regulatory requirements for conducting human subjects research, as well as the process for identifying and managing conflicts of interest. There will also be discussions about the ethical obligation to protect research participants, the ethical issues concerning unidentified conflicts of interest, and the importance of mentor-mentee relationships in fostering an efficient and ethical research environment.
