From human subjects protection to the responsible conduct of research, bioscientists around the world seek, study, and try to adhere to Ethics standards originating at the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH). For this special Dialogue—the 200th in a University of Miami series that began in 1992—the Chief of the NIH Department of Bioethics will share thoughts on the history and role of the NIH in fostering improved attention to ethical issues in biomedical research. The Dialogue will feature an interview format that will also address federal expectations of institutions that receive funding support, including the importance of ethics education in addition to (mere) compliance; interprofessional research and the role of nurses; and ethical challenges encountered during the Coronavirus pandemic.
