About the Collaborative Initiative for Research Ethics (CIRE)


Research Ethics and Environmental Health maintains information from a previous grant program, "Short Courses in Research Ethics" (T15 A149650, funded 2000-2007), of the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute of the NIH. This project is focused on research ethics training resources for professionals, students and community health advocates in community health, environmental health and public health. We will add new resources to this site on an ongoing basis.
