As a participant in the recent Educational Institute on Responsible Research with Infectious Diseases: Ensuring Safe Science in the 21st Century that was held in Aqaba, Jordan, from 7-13 September, 2012, your reflections on the quality of discussions during the Institute and the implications of these discussions for research, policy, and education practice are important.
We are inviting you to provide feedback to the U.S. National Academy of Sciences and to the Bibliotheca Alexandrina about the Institute itself. We also would like to know how you are planning to use what you learned at the Institute in your own academic/research setting and in collaboration with other participants from your country and across the region. While your response will remain confidential, your views will be combined with those of your Institute colleagues to guide us in improving future programs on education about responsible conduct of science. This survey should take approximately 15 minutes to complete.
Thank you for your participation.
