Biomedical Research Integrity Program

Sponsored by the Department of Bioethics & Humanities
School of Medicine, University of Washington

The Public Health Service (PHS) and its research institutions require that all pre-and post-doctoral researchers supported by PHS training grants receive training in the responsible conduct of research. The School of Medicine has developed a program of lectures with associated discussion groups, entitled the Biomedical Research Integrity (BRI) Program, for its researchers to meet this requirement. All School of Medicine trainees are required to participate.
