Research at the NIH must be conducted in an ethical and responsible manner. Fellows at NIEHS are required to attend mandatory training sessions and are also given the opportunity to engage in optional electives and discussions about research ethics and responsible conduct. For detailed information on research ethics and appropriate conduct, visit the Office of Intramural Training and Education page on understanding NIH policies.
