Project Description

With increasing number and scope of research projects, the University of Maryland School of Medicine, Center for Bioethics and Research and University of Ibadan, Nigeria identified need to build capacity for mentored Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR), research/scientific integrity (RSI), Conflict of Interest (CoI), Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), Safe Working Environment and Sexual Harassment training to strengthen research environment in Nigeria. We engage our successful training resources, technologies, and models to create new institutional resources and infrastructure, conduct advocacy, build public and professional awareness, implement training and innovative e-mentoring for RCR, RSI, CoI, DEI, Safe Working Environment and Sexual Harassment in sixteen Nigerian universities. We use the experiences and expectations of our trainees and use these to create a Learning Educational Program (LEP) with regular adjustments and updates to our curriculum contents and training examples.
