Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Workshop

Tuesday, 25 April, 2017

“How do I keep data safe? Information security and research data” 

Held in the Learning Resource Center, Room 113

This workshop is led by Information Technology Services (ITS) and provides attendees with strategies and best practices on how to keep their research data safe.  Different software, hardware, analysis programs, and servers and their implications for data security are discussed.

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 and/or NSF are required to complete RCR online modules through Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) AND a minimum of eight (8) hours of face-to-face RCR training.  This workshop will count as 2 hours for the 8 hours of face-to-face training required by NIH/NSF.

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.
