Academy in Bioethics

Involving humans in experimental research is essential to advance science and drug discovery. As more and more clinical trials are conducted in developing countries, protecting the rights and welfare of vulnerable participants is essential but also necessary to avoid desktop rejection, retraction and poor reputation.

Nature Research Academies has developed this 1-day interactive workshop for clinical researchers to explain how to ethically conduct research with human participants.

  • 1-day workshops
  • Available to institutions globally, to host on-site
  • For up to 50 clinical researchers
