On March 23, ENAR held a special invited panel discussion
on Research Ethics in Biostatistics and the Biostatistician's
Role. The chair,
gave an introduction and overview,
after which the panelists
each gave brief presentations touching on
four questions they had been asked to address:
1. What is an investigator's personal responsibility with respect to research ethics (including reproducibility) in his/her own laboratory?
2. What role, if any, should journals serve in ensuring reproducibility?
3. What is the institutional role?
4. What is the responsibility of federal agencies with respect to reproducibility and research ethics? How does this differ when the agency is in the role of the grantor (e.g., NIH) versus the role of a regulator (e.g., FDA)?
This was followed by a fairly active question and answer period.
