Bioethics and Subject Advocacy Program (BSAP) of the Indiana CTSI:
Innovative research to develop and implement medical breakthroughs often raises complex ethical questions. Frequently there are no simple right or wrong answers, and regulations are absent or murky when applied to innovative methods and approaches.
The Bioethics and Subject Advocacy Program (BSAP) of the Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI) works with researchers, trainees, and leadership to support ethical research, effective communication with patients and research participants, and the responsible conduct of research.
BSAP supports translational research on all four campuses of the Indiana CTSI by:
- Providing free, timely, confidential consults to researchers, administration, and leadership,
- Collaborating over extended periods with high-risk, high-reward research programs in areas such as precision health,
- Educating students and trainees about ethics and responsible conduct of research.
- Hosting monthly talks on Translational Research Ethics – Applied Topics (TREATs) talks, and making recordings available with additional information. You can search topics, such as Authorship, Research with Children, De-Identified data, Virtual research.
- Conducting research on research ethics itself, identifying and disseminating best practices.
