Registration Deadline: Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR)
The Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) gives you a front-row seat to the issues scientists can face and the best ways to handle them. RCR addresses everything from conflicts of interest to the ethical treatment of animals 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. Due to the pandemic as a result of COVID-19, this course will be taught via Zoom.
The RCR course is free and open to everyone. Classes are held each summer, registration is required, and participants must attend eight of the eleven sessions to receive a certificate of completion. Video attendance is needed to meet this requirement. Classes are one hour in length. If you can’t wait attend the summer session, RCR certificates are also available through the Winter Essentials of Patient-Oriented Research (EPOR) course.
