It prepares you for the future. You’re reminded of what situations people can get themselves into and learn to recognize if those situations come up in your life and how you can deal with them in the best way.
Robert Hamanaka, PhD

The Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) gives you a front-row seat to the issues investigators can face and the best ways to handle them. During the last two years, more than 140 people have attended the course, which addresses everything from conflicts of interest to the ethical treatment of animals in research to intellectual property.

All those who receive support from a National Institutes of Health (NIH) and/or National Science Foundation (NSF) training grant are required to complete an RCR at the start of their training and again every four years. This requires eight hours of in-person training, so please note that the CITI requirement for IRB submission does not count.

The RCR course is held each summer and is free and open to everyone. Registration is required, and participants must attend six of the eight sessions to receive a certificate of completion.

While registration for Summer 2016 has not opened yet, you can get a taste for the lectures by viewing the below schedule and check back in the Spring to secure your spot.
