The overall goal of this initiative is to support the mentored training of a sustainable critical mass of bioethics scholars in low and middle-income country (LMIC) research intensive institutions with the capabilities to conduct original empirical or conceptual ethics research that addresses challenging issues in health research and research policy in these countries as well as provide research ethics leadership to their institutions, governments and international research organizations. FIC will support LMIC-U.S. collaborative institutional bioethics doctoral and postdoctoral research training programs that incorporate mentored research, advanced theoretical didactic courses and ethics career skills training components to prepare multiple individuals for positions of ethics scholarship and leadership in health research institutions in LMICs.
