Lunch provided at noon. Talk begins at 12:10pm.

Everyone thinks research ethics is important. But different stakeholders-- compliance officers, researchers, philosophers, funding agencies, trainees, and members of the public-often mean radically different things by 'research ethics.' This talk will explore the concept of research ethics with the aim of ensuring that programs effectively meet the needs of diverse stakeholders in research.

In addition to directing the Center for Bioethics Research, James DuBois, PhD, is the Steven J. Bander Professor of Medical Ethics and Professionalism and Professor of Psychology at Washington University. His research interests include: understanding and preventing ethical lapses in healthcare and research, assessing the effects of Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) and ethics education, research ethics in mental health, and empirical research on bioethical issues. He is the founding co-editor of Narrative Inquiry in Bioethics: A Journal of Qualitative Research.
