Department of Pharmacology, Manipal College of Pharmaceutical Sciences is organising AICTE sponsored Faculty Development Programme for two weeks during 19-31 August 2019. The FDP program is on ‘Conduct of Research and Publication Ethics’. This event is planned for Teachers of AICTE approved institutes of India to enrich their knowledge on fundamentals and the ethical issues in research. An overwhelming increase in scientific misconduct, mushrooming of predatory journals and publication retractions these days, needs to be sensitized. Thus the FDP is deserved for the current scenario.
