Biomedical research in the developing world faces many challenges, dilemmas and difficulties. Ensuring that research conducted in developing countries is done under proper ethical oversight and is responsive to the local context is a major concern in this context.
Please see the articles below:
A major project of the Global Ethics Education Initiative (GEEI) is the enhancement of research ethics capacity in developing countries. Accordingly, we are able to bring a limited number of individuals from such countries to the University of Maryland, Baltimore for an intensive, two-month summer training in research ethics.
To enhance the success of our education initiative, we would like to fund more individuals to attend our summer program as well as develop state-of-the-art distance learning technology.
The continued success of our initiative will require philanthropic support from individual, corporate, and foundation donors to support our on-going training as well as future programs.
The GEEI invites you to make a gift. Your financial support is greatly appreciated and will significantly impact the mission of the University of Maryland GEEI.
