The next Responsible Conduct of Research workshop, titled "Authorship and Peer Review," will be held from 2-4 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 9, in Boileau Hall. It will include a panel of faculty members representing different disciplines and areas of expertise on the topic, and aims to be both educational and engaging.
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. At least eight hours of face-to-face RCR training is required for undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and trainees who receive support through any NSF or NIH funds. This training should be completed by the end of one's program.
In order to meet this requirement, Saint Louis University will provide a series of workshops throughout the year for individuals to attend. Attending at least four two-hour workshops will put one in compliance, but attending more is always encouraged. Though required for students and trainees supported by NIH and NSF, all researchers are welcome to attend. Additional topics for the semester will be announced at a later date.
In order to confer credit for attendance, RSVP to RCR@slu.edu as space is limited.
For more information about the requirements, visit the RCR website, email RCR@slu.edu or call 314-977-7047.
