Responsible Conduct of Research training April 24

Responsible Conduct of Research training will be offered via Zoom on Wednesday, April 24 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

This workshop fulfills the National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health requirements for formal RCR instruction. RCR training covers core norms, principles, regulations, and rules governing the practice of research. RCR is a required training for undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers supported by NSF awards.

RCR is a highly recommended “best practices” course for those desiring to deepen their knowledge of ethical research and responsible conduct. It is also an excellent professional opportunity for anyone interested in furthering a career in research. It is an NIH requirement that all BLaST Mentors, Scholars, UREs, and other funded projects participate in RCR training. UAFs RCR training is open to all UAF-, UAS- and Ilisagvik-affiliated individuals (faculty, graduate students, staff, and undergraduates).

This training is a two-part training. Part one requires completing an online CITI Training module, and part two requires participating in RCR training. You must complete both parts to receive your RCR certificate.

The training is brought to you by the Office of Research Integrity. Email Carla McCain at to sign up.
