Towards Responsible Research and Innovation with Jason Delborne and Khara Grieger | MBTP Faculty Mentors

April 8, 2022 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Towards Responsible Research and Innovation

*Note: The MBTP Faculty Mentors workshop series is restricted to NC State faculty involved in the NIH Molecular Biotechnology Training Program.

What makes research “responsible”? What can we do to pursue innovations that will serve the public good? Why are responsible conduct of research (RCR) and research ethics requirements not enough? In this workshop, we will explore the framework of “responsible research and innovation,” which offers a lens for thinking about the social and political context of science and the practices that can promote responsibility. We will discuss how to share these concepts with our students in ways that align with their personal and professional goals. The presenters have studied this field for many years and participated in interdisciplinary teams of natural and social scientists attempting to adhere to recommended practices.
