Overview

The Johns Hopkins University is deeply committed to the protection of human research subjects.  This commitment begins with comprehensive compulsory education and training of its faculty, student, and staff researchers who conduct human subjects research. 

Research Ethics Workshops about responsibilities and duties of scientists (REWards) is a one-day course in the School of Medicine designed to address key concepts in human subjects protection in specific research communities. REWards combines lectures and small group discussions to provide practical information on the ethical issues involved in research protocol development and implementation.
