Faculty Panels

To provide more diverse perspectives and experience, the Scientific Ethics course includes a session with a faculty panel. Typically, this consists of 3-4 faculty from various disciplines who volunteer to join the course to engage in discussion of research ethics questions that the students have raised about responsible and good practices of research.
