International Research Ethics Education and Curriculum Development Award

The Fogarty International Center and several ICs have supported International Research Ethics Education and Curriculum Development awards since FY2000 (see for list of current awards).  The goal of this initiative is to strengthen research ethics capacity in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) through increasing the number of scientists, health professionals and relevant academics from these countries with in-depth knowledge of the ethical principles, processes and policies related to international clinical and public health research as well as the critical skills to develop research ethics education, ethical review leadership and expert consultation to researchers, their institutions, governments and international research organizations.   FIC and the participating ICs invite applications for International Research Ethics Education and Curriculum Development Program Award programs:

1. To develop a comprehensive ethics education program including master's level curricula and practicum opportunities for LMIC academics, researchers and health professionals in ethics related to performing research involving human subjects in their home countries or; 

2. To revise and renew existing master's level international ethics education programs or;

It is expected that such master’s level research education will enhance the career development of participants from LMICs, as well as strengthen ethics scholarship and sustain their capacity to design and direct ethics activities related to clinical and public health research at their home institutions and countries.  Participant recruitment and selection strategies should be designed to identify the strongest potential LMIC leaders in research ethics as well as create institutional or regional networking and collaboration opportunities to sustain a critical mass of ethics leadership for maximum impact afterparticipation.   Faculty and mentors from LMICs with research ethics expertise should play significant roles in proposed programs to insure the relevance of the curriculum and sustainable impact of the participants afterward. Innovative approaches for continuing research ethics education and networking for participants that will sustain their development as research ethics leaders at their home institutions are encouraged.
