The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) encourages applications for research on ethical issues in human subjects research. This announcement is made together with 16 other components of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Recent developments in biomedical and behavioral research—which include the rapid growth of new interventions and technologies, increasing involvement of foreign populations in human subjects research, and concerns about financial conflicts of interest among researchers—challenge the ability of investigators to interpret and apply necessary ethical regulations. Other situations may present difficulties for identifying strategies, procedures, and/or techniques that will enhance or ensure the ethical involvement of human subjects in research. Thus, research on ethical issues in human subjects research is necessary to enhance interpretation and application of ethical principles and regulatory requirements.
For more information, potential applicants should contact Joanne Odenkirchen, Clinical Research Project Manager, Clinical Trials Group, NINDS; telephone: 301-496-3104; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
