Research Ethics Workshops
This program is offered through the Biological and Biomedical Sciences Program (BBSP) at UNC. With a focus on ethical awareness and ethical decision making, these workshops serve as a vital component of the ethics training required for BBSP students. BBSP ethics training workshops emphasize student discussion and analysis of ethical issues pertaining to work in the sciences, including contemporary cases of plagiarism and falsification of data in research. In addition, BBSP students gain a basic understanding of important ethical theories (utilitarianism, deontology, care ethics, virtue ethics) and how they can apply these theories when confronting ethical dilemmas. These workshops are open to graduate students in the Biological and Biomedical Sciences Program.
