The Research Ethics Program serves as a resource for the campus community to identify and address ethical challenges intrinsic to the conduct of science, engineering, and other academic scholarship.

Case of the Month: January 2018

Frequently cases of research misconduct committed by trainees (graduate students, postdoctoral researchers) occurred without the knowledge of the Principal Investigator (PI) leading the research group, even in cases where he or she was included as an author on the fraudulent publications. Although it is often not possible for every member of a research team to have firsthand knowledge of all of the work conducted, it is reasonable to ask whether the PI or mentor has an obligation to see more than data summaries.
