Fogarty International Program in Research Ethics: Research Ethics Education in the Balkans and Black Sea Countries

This grant has been awarded through the Fogarty International Center at the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH). By pooling the combined resources of Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) and the University of Belgrade School of Medicine (UBSM) we have created an educational program for clinicians, biomedical researchers and other professionals from this region that provides them with the knowledge and skills to enable them to become leaders and spearhead the development of research ethics infrastructure and regulation. Over the span of the five-year project the participants become a community of scholars and resources for each other and their region.
