The Research Ethics Program, led by Yale School of Public Health faculty Kaveh Khoshnood with funding support from the National Institute of Health Fogarty International Center, is a five-year program funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH). This program seeks to establish a comprehensive collaborative program for international research ethics education and curriculum development. It does so through the joint effort of a multidisciplinary team of researchers and ethicists from Yale University, Central South University Xiangya School of Medicine, and a distinguished Training Advisory Group (TAG). The program offers short training seminars in Changsha and brings both Xiangya graduate students and young faculty to Yale for academic training.
