while the process may be led, to some degree, by the United States, it cannot be dominated by the United States.

THE NEED TO REVAMP THE EDUCATION OF OUR NEXT GENERATION OF SCIENTISTS

Workshop planning committee co-chair David Korn, Consultant in Pathology, Massachusetts General Hospital and Professor of Pathology, Harvard Medical School, concluded the workshop by calling on U.S. universities to be more proactive in educating their students and junior faculty in the ethical conduct of research. Korn placed particular emphasis on the importance of ethics in the sharing of data, disclosures of conflict of interest issues, and the conduct of risk/benefit estimations. In Korn’s view, institutional efforts designed to promote the ethical and responsible conduct of research would be much more effective than any oversight that might be imposed from the outside.
