Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR): Intellectual Property; Patents and Tech Transfer
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. The RCR course is free and open to everyone. Participants must attend eight of the eleven sessions to receive a certificate of completion. Video attendance is needed to meet this requirement.
