Consortium faculty member Steven Miles, MD, of the University's Center for Bioethics will be offering a new, 15-week lecture series beginning January 19, 2016. The series, Standards for Research with Human Participants, is designed to foster better understanding and compliance when conducting human participant research. Miles, an eminent bioethicist, will present a broad set of legal and regulatory topics, including informed consent, vulnerable persons, conflicts of interest and research misconduct. Lectures offer succinct overviews of a topic and provide bibliographical links to relevant University, NIH and international standards. Each individual lecture qualifies for Continuing Medical Education (CME) or Continuing Nursing Education (CNE) credits or fulfills Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) requirements. The full series of 15 lectures can be taken for academic credit. For registration details related to all three types of credit, visit the Center for Bioethics website.
