Wright Named Junior Research Ethics Fellow

The Research and Professional Ethics Program is proud to announce that NC State PhD student, David Wright, has been named one of its Junior Research Ethics Fellows for 2005-2007.  The university-wide competition carries with it an award of $1,000.

As a Fellow, Wright will participate in the workshop, "Introduction to Research Ethics", and collaborate with two Senior Research Ethics Fellows, Drs. Tom Honeycutt and Ed Gehringer to create an interactive instructional module in computer science and research ethics.  His work will be a part of a national initiative funded by the National Science Foundation to create a Model Curriculum for Land Grant Universities in Research Ethics (LANGURE).  More details on LANGURE are available here:

Wright will present a draft of the module in a Computer Science seminar on Friday, October 28, at 2:20 pm in Engineering Building 2, room 1231, on Centennial Campus.  The public is invited.
