Responsible Conduct of Research training coming Nov. 1

Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training will be offered Tuesday, Nov. 1, 2022, from 2-5 p.m. via Zoom. The training is brought to you by the Office of Research Integrity.

RCR training covers core norms, principles, regulations and rules governing the practice of research. 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. This particular workshop fulfills the National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health requirements for formal RCR instruction.

It is an NIH requirement that all BLaST GMRAs, Scholars, UREs and other funded projects participate in RCR training. This is the only formal RCR training at UAF this semester.

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 you to complete an online CITI Training module and part two requires you to participate in the three hour Zoom workshop on Nov. 1. You must complete both parts to receive your RCR certificate.  Email Carla McCain to sign up now.
