You should produce a concise and coherent essay, of about 1200–1500 words (equivalent to about three A4 pages of text with 1½ spacing and 11-point Calibri font), with roughly equal weight given to the following:1. Briefly describe the research carried out (at a level reasonably expected of a level-3 or level-4 undergraduate student). 2. Highlighting the ethical issues that arose – criminal, misconduct, unethical, “honest error” …? You will have to use your own judgement here! 3. Which points on Resnik’s ethical list (see appendix)have been violated? Discuss… 4. What could have been done better? How could the issues have been avoided? The essay will be graded on the common grading scheme taking account of the following: • Clarity of essay, both in language and presentation; • Description of underlying science/research at a sensible level; • understanding of the ethical issues involved; • A clear and coherent statement of your opinions;• Supporting references, sensibly used (i.e.: not just Wikipedia…); • Reasonable length (i.e., hasn’t crammed in four pages of single-spaced font 10 or – the opposite – two pages of double-spaced font 14!!). The use of supporting graphics is welcome but only if they genuinely aid understanding (i.e., please don’t include random pictures cut-and-pasted from the Internet for the sake of it). See page 5 of this document for information on plagiarism and referencing topic: Milena crashes to earth Neuroscientist Milena Penkowa (University of Copenhagen) was the rising superstar of Danish science who was awarded millions of kroner in research funding until her career imploded after her own research students raised concerns re fraud and embezzlement. She now advertises as a “dog therapist” on Facebook. How did she get as far as she did? Did the university try too hard to protect its “star scientist” (and its own reputation) from “disgruntled students”? Would you expect such a culture of nepotism and cronyism in a country like Denmark? What would you do as a research student if you suspected misconduct from your supervisor? https://www.nature.com/news/2011/110107/full/news.2011.703.htmlAppendix: Resnik’s ethical list There seems to be almost as many versions of ‘Resnik’s list’ as there are web pages… The following list of 16 ethical points, as recently stated by Resnik himself, is slightly condensed from https://www.niehs.nih.gov/research/resources/bioethics/whatis/index.cfm
