Annual Research Ethics Day Conference: Building Partnerships to Advance Ethical Research: Collaborators, Communities & Companies

February 28 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm


About the Event:

As research teams become larger and more complex, forging effective partnerships to ensure the ethical conduct of research has become more challenging. Yet creating successful collaborations to ensure the responsible conduct of research is crucial at all stages of the research process. Researchers need to build a team that successfully integrates investigators, research staff, and trainees in the responsible conduct of research. They need to be able to partner respectfully in community-engaged and community-led research, building alliances to advance equity, inclusion, and cross-learning. And in creating relationships with funders and companies to develop and apply the research, researchers need to fulfill ethical duties including disclosure and managing conflicts of interest and commitment.

Join interdisciplinary experts for a unique conference on how to build partnerships with investigators, communities, clinical research professionals, and companies to promote the ethical conduct and translation of research. National leaders will discuss successes and challenges in a wide range of research programs. They will consider the elements of successful collaboration that promote research integrity, inclusivity, mutual respect, and accountability in the conduct of research. As a public, land-grant research university, we aim to explore these vital issues with our faculty, staff, trainees, students, and community, as well as a national audience.


Presented by the Research & Innovation Office (RIO)Consortium on Law and Values in Health, Environment & the Life SciencesMasonic Cancer Center; and Clinical Translational Science Institute, University of Minnesota.
