Name: Dr. Qais Alefan
Current Position: Assistant Dean, faculty of pharmacy, Jordan University of Science and Technology
Participation in the RCR Program:
I decided to participate in the Jordan RCR program to get a general overview about research ethics. Also, I wanted to learn the major ethical issues in research involving both humans and animals. I wanted to learn how to solve ethics related concerns and dilemmas in my research. In short, I wanted to know “What is good and what is an ethical research? “.
My Research Ethics Related Interests:
While conducting research projects in pharmaco-economics, I normally collect data on human subjects and evaluate the economic outcomes of some pharmaceutical interventions. So, it is good for me to know the ethical concerns related to human data collection and patients’ rights while receiving any pharmaceutical interventions or not.
