Research Ethics Program Core (REP)

The mission of the Research Ethics Program is to provide investigators, key personnel, and trainees with research collaboration, education, and consultation that address ethical issues in the design and conduct of translational and clinical research. We are primarily engaged in contributing to the CTSA's research ethics educational needs, and we provide consultation services for CTSA and other researchers facing ethical issues in planning or performing their studies. We also have research interests in identifying new and emerging ethical issues in translational research and are looking for collaborative opportunities to better understand this research paradigm.
