Ethics in Myanmar: Research ethics, local capacity development, and malaria
Led by Myaing Nyunt, MD, MPH, PhD, School of Medicine, Institute for Global Health
Students (school affiliation): Lindsay Morton (graduate school) and Boris Tizenberg (medicine)
The goal of this project was to help students gain both an understanding of how research ethics principles are applied in human subject research conducted in Myanmar, and first-hand experience in research data collection.
Two UMB students worked directly with Dr. Nyunt, as well as with Myanmar faculty members and staff who recently completed intensive research ethics training at UMB, and were currently planning projects related to research ethics in Myanmar. These projects were related to the assessment of knowledge in and attitude toward research ethics, and the application of research ethics principles among researchers, postgraduate students and members of ethics review committees.
The student presentation made at the UM Institute for Global Health's Fall 2016 Global Health Summit can be downloaded here.
