Saint Louis University

The next Responsible Conduct of Research workshop this fall semester, titled "Authorship and Peer Review," will be held from 9 to 11 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 2, in room 113 in the Learning Resource Center.

The workshop will be facilitated by Stephanie Solomon, Ph.D., assistant professor in the Albert Gnaegi Center for Health Care Ethics, and will also include a panel of faculty and staff representing different disciplines and areas of expertise on the topic and aims to be both educational and engaging for all researchers.

Panel members will include:

  • Deborah Loman, Ph.D., associate professor of nursing
  • Terri Weaver, Ph.D., professor of psychology
  • Brent Znosko, Ph.D., associate professor of chemistry

As a reminder, the National Science Foundation (NSF) and National Institutes of Health (NIH) have established training requirements in Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) for programs supporting research training, career development, or research education.

All graduate and undergraduate students, post-doctoral fellows and trainees supported by research funds from NIH or NSF are required to complete RCR online modules through Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) and a minimum of eight hours of face-to-face RCR training. Training must be completed prior to the end of the grant-funded activity.

In order to meet the in-person requirement, Saint Louis University will provide a series of two-hour workshops throughout the year for individuals to attend. Attending at least four workshops will put one in compliance, but attending more is always encouraged.

In order to confer credit for attendance, RSVP to, as space is limited. For more information about the requirements, visit the RCR website, or contact or 314-977-7047 for more information.
