Vanderbilt-Mozambique Collaborative Research Ethics Education Program (FoCEP)
The Vanderbilt University-Mozambique Collaborative Research Ethics Education Program has established educational programs in biomedical research ethics to strengthen research ethics capacity in Mozambique.
In collaboration with faculty and administrators at the Universidade Eduardo Mondlane in Maputo, the nation’s capital, Vanderbilt seeks to increase the number of qualified investigators who can apply international standards in ethics to their study protocols, and who can provide leadership to sustain a culture for the ethical conduct of research.
Principal investigators are Elizabeth Heitman, Ph.D., associate professor of Medical Ethics, Medicine and Anesthesiology in the Vanderbilt Center for Biomedical Ethics and Society, and Troy Moon, M.D., MPH, assistant professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Infectious Diseases and the Vanderbilt Institute for Global Health.
