10:10-11:40 a.m. Cultural Differences and Nuances

Quite often cross-cultural nuances and culture-centric perspectives—grounded in one’s experience or merely assumed—often cloud conversations between faculty researchers and research administrators when they are negotiating the shared development of meaningful international research agreements. In this session we will hear from a number of experts on cross-cultural communications, understanding, and collaborations.

11:40 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Ethics

The ethics panel stands between the culture panel and the research integrity panel in the sense that ethics are informed by culture and govern behavioral choices in the conduct of research. This panel will explore issues related to the ethics of safeguarding privacy/security/and confidentiality; bioethical issues related to human subjects research as well as other activities with bioethical implications, all from both a domestic U.S. and a global perspective.
