The course directors are Professors Jane Kneller (Philosophy) and Kathy Partin (Biomedical Sciences).

    For more information on the Ethics Infusion Program, please contact Carolyn.Broccardo@colostate.edu. All are welcome to attend - light breakfast will be served.
  • Faculty Training Workshops - The goal of this 2-part "train-the-trainer" series is to discuss how to best navigate the often sensitive issues of data management and authorship in the laboratory. Faculty play a critical role in training students on these topics through direct conversation, example, and hands-on experience. These workshops will discuss the nuances of these issues and how to best communicate them with trainees. A lack of effective training in these areas may lead to unnecessary conflict and disputes, or worst case scenario, charges of research misconduct.

  • FBI Academic Biosecurity Workshop
    • Colorado State University hosted a regional FBI Academic Biosecurity Workshop in the spring of 2012. The Research Integrity & Compliance Review Office, Environmental Health Services, and Office of Vice President for Research sponsored the event in conjunction with the FBI.
      Experts from the FBI shared information and provided training for researchers, faculty, administrators, staff and students, as well as law enforcement officers.
      Area first responders, local/state/federal governmental employees, health care providers and biotech company employees were also encouraged to participate.
      The FBI Academic Biosecurity Workshop promoted a culture of responsibility and security by raising awareness to biosecurity risks - from personnel reliability and workplace violence to dual use research of concerns. It highlighted the benefits of collaborating and coordinating expertise, which helps mitigate real and perceived obstacles and improves cooperation and communication between the scientific and security communities.
      Similar workshops have been held recently at Kansas State University, Mississippi State University and in the Pacific Northwest.
