Humans in Research
The Science and Ethics of Humans in Research
Why do scientists involve humans in biomedical research? Who participates in research and why? Furthermore, how does the complex--and sometimes difficult--history of research with humans influence current attitudes, policies and practices?
This curriculum introduces students to how research with humans is conducted, the rules and regulations involved, and the bioethical principles that guide scientists when involving humans in research. Lesson strategies and bioethical discussions engage students in science content, as well as promote an understanding of the role of science in society.
