PRIM&R is a place where ethics
education has a direct and immediate impact on decision and action in the real
world. Those we serve—you—are on the front lines: champions of ethical research
practices and subject protections, and incredibly important to both public
trust and research success. Our job is to provide you with the courses, tools,
and networks you need to ensure ethical practices in your research programs.
Since 1974, we have led the field in providing highly acclaimed conferences and short courses,
practical tools, and cutting-edge strategies to all those involved in the
research enterprise. As we look forward, we are eager not only to continue our
work serving those on the front lines of ethical research, but also to make our
programs more accessible to all. That's where we need your help.
As you plan your year-end charitable contributions, please consider supporting
PRIM&R's scholarship funds. A gift of any amount is an investment in ethical and responsible research.
