Research Ethics

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.

Spring Ethics Training Workshop at Xiangya (March 18-22, 2013)

Professors Kaveh Khoshnood, Associate Professor at the School of Public Health, Madelon Baranoski, Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Vice Chair of the Human Investigation Committee at the School of Medicine, and Jamie Moreno, Fellow in Infectious Diseases at the School of Medicine, conducted a workshop in Changsha. Attended by Xiangya faculty and graduate students, the March workshop focused on three topics: ethical considerations in research on vulnerable populations, ethical considerations in research with children, and ethical dilemmas in community research.

Summer Bioethics Institute at Yale (June-July 2013)

Yale’s Interdisciplinary Center for Bioethics offers an intensive two-month summer program for American and international undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in learning more about bioethics. Participants hear a series of morning lectures surveying the field of bioethics, engage with intensive seminars on special topics, attend a bioethics film/discussion series, participate in field trips to bioethics-related institutions, and present an original paper at a final in-house “mini-conference”.
