The Science and Ethics of HIV Vaccine Research – Curriculum Appendix

This is the Appendix to the six-lesson curriculum “The Science and Ethics of HIV Vaccine Research,” developed by NWABR. This appendix includes extensive teacher background information about HIV, the human immune system, creating an HIV vaccine, vaccine challenges, and the role of non-human primates in HIV vaccine development. Lesson extensions, resources for consideration of the ethical use of humans in research (i.e., the Declaration of Helsinki and the Nuremberg Code), and additional resources for HIV vaccine information are also included.

The Science and Ethics of HIV Vaccine Research – Lesson Six: Culminating Assessments

This is the sixth lesson in the six-lesson curriculum “The Science and Ethics of HIV Vaccine Research,” developed by NWABR. In this lesson, three different culminating assessments are offered. The first option is an individual essay, in which students combine the paragraphs they have written for homework over the course of the unit into one essay. Two handouts accompany the individual essay option: a framework for the student to use in writing his or her essay, and a grading rubric for both teachers and students to use. In the second assessment option, students complete a ‘Research Proposal’ in small groups, and present the proposal to an Institutional Review Board (IRB) – either their classmates or other reviewers. The IRB will recommend the best proposal using the criteria for evaluation. Two handouts accompany the research proposal option: a guide to help student groups create a fundable research proposal, and a presentation/grading rubric for both teachers and students to use. The third assessment option, working either individually or as a group, students review a mock research proposal seeking to gain IRB approval. The IRB evaluates whether or not the research proposed should proceed. Four handouts accompany the mock IRB approval option: a guide with questions to help students review the provided research proposal; a mock research proposal; a grading rubric for both teachers and students to use, and an answer key for assessing student responses to the questions posed to help students review the provided research proposal.

The Science and Ethics of HIV Vaccine Research – Lesson Five: Global Awareness Activity

This is the fifth lesson in the six-lesson curriculum “The Science and Ethics of HIV Vaccine Research,” developed by NWABR. This activity is designed to demonstrate how differences in culture, resources, and HIV/AIDS in five regions of the world combine to impact work on the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Access to medical care and education, cultural characteristics, and wealth are all issues that will be explored to heighten students’ global perspective on how difficult it is to launch an HIV vaccine trial. In this activity, students gather in small groups that represent the size of the populations of different regions of the world: North America, Latin America, Europe, Africa and Asia. Student ambassadors from each region share information about the demographics, resources, and cultures of each area. Visual aids represent resources (such as band-aids for per capita healthcare spending and red beads to represent the number of people infected with HIV). The lesson ends with a discussion of health disparities and the implications for conducting HIV vaccine research trials in different parts of the world.

The Science and Ethics of HIV Vaccine Research – Lesson Four: Case Studies and Human Research Ethics

This is the fourth lesson in the six-lesson curriculum “The Science and Ethics of HIV Vaccine Research,” developed by NWABR. The purpose of this lesson is to help students understand ethical considerations related to testing vaccines in humans. Students will brainstorm their own rules for performing research trials with human participants, and then examine historical cases that have influenced research guidelines for human research participants. After comparing their guidelines to existing guidelines for research with human participants and the bioethical principles of respect for persons, beneficence and justice, students determine which guidelines were violated in each of the case studies and how those guidelines affect HIV vaccine development. This will prepare students to later apply their understanding of ethical guidelines to their own research proposals (“The Science and Ethics of HIV Vaccine Research” Lesson Six).
