Case Studies in the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) - 3/22/2022

Starts Mar 22, 2022


Full course description

LIVE SESSION: Tuesday, March 22, 2022 @2:00pm - 3:00pm, Zoom

Class Description: Case Studies in the Responsible (and Irresponsible) Conduct of Research draws on classic cases from the history of science where prominent scientists encountered ethical dilemmas. The cases serve to identify the sort of ethical issues that can arise in the conduct of research, the range of (better and worse) responses that scientists have in the past and can in the future take to such issues, and the regulatory mechanisms that are in place to address these cases when infractions occur.


Objectives: At the conclusion of this class, you should be able to:

  • Analyze the various issues that fall under the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR)
  • Review famous cases from the history of science involving scientists behaving responsibly and irresponsibly
  • Discuss how those famous cases would be handled under the current regulatory system in place for dealing with issues pertaining to the responsible conduct of research

REd Synchronous classes are taught by subject matter experts, and provide both fundamental and advanced skills training in flipped classroom format. These classes are offered live (currently, via Zoom), wherein participants will attend and participate in a 1-hour presentation and will be held responsible for completing any required pre-class and/or post-class activities outside the classroom (these activities can include: readings, videos, etc.). Participants can expect to spend up to 1-hour with these activities. The total duration for these synchronous classes is approximately 2-hours.
