Research Ethics Lunchtime Discussion with Dr. Sergey Leikin on "Recusal"
Bldg 31, Rm. 2A48

Is it OK to be a reviewer of a paper written by a collaborator? How about a paper written by a competitor; a grant application from a friend, collaborator or competitor? How does one respond to a friendly request from a colleague to be a reviewer of his/her paper? What does an NIH FARE judge do when asked to rate an abstract from his/her laboratory? Any experienced researcher has to deal with issues like these monthly if not more often, yet there are no simple universal answers. During this research ethics session on recusal, Sergey Leikin, Head of the Section on Physical Biochemistry, Office of the Scientific Director, will discuss some of the actual cases he encountered in the last couple of years.
