In "The Lab: Avoiding Research Misconduct," you become the lead characters in an interactive movie and make decisions about integrity in research that can have long-term consequences. The simulation addresses Responsible Conduct of Research topics such as avoiding research misconduct, mentorship responsibilities, handling of data, responsible authorship, and questionable research practices. You can choose between playing the role of graduate student, post doc, a principal investigator, or a research integrity officer.
This interactive training video educates clinical and social researchers on the importance of appropriately protecting research participants and avoiding research misconduct. "The Research Clinic" allows you to assume the role of one of four characters and determines the outcome of the storyline by selecting decision-making choices for each “playable” character. In this simulation, you get to become a principal investigator, a clinical research coordinator, a research assistant, and an institutional review board (IRB) chair and make decisions that affects the outcome of the story.
