Law in the Laboratory: A Primer for Scientists Conducting Federally Funded Research
This workshop, conducted by Robert P. Charrow, J.D. from Greenberg Traurig, LLP, will address three areas—misconduct in science, human subjects and privacy, and financial conflicts of interest. To help illustrate the application of the rules that pertain in each area, hypothetical case studies will be presented and discussed. Attendees should read the case studies beforehand and be prepared to discuss each during the workshop. (Case studies will be distributed shortly before the event.)
After this workshop the participants will be able to:
Describe scientific misconduct and its prevalence in the scientific community.
Understand the rules and regulations regarding human subjects in research.
Understand financial conflict of interest and the Federal rules with regard to PHS funded research.
Develop appropriate responses and remediation actions when misconduct occurs.
