'Crossing the Line: Avoiding Misconduct and Questionable Research Practices'

Tuesday, 07 November, 2017

Stephanie Solomon Cargill, Ph.D., will lead a workshop from 10 a.m. to noon on Tuesday, Nov. 7, in Lecture Hall 1, Schwitalla Hall M115, as part of the University’s Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training series.

Registration is requested.

This workshop provides attendees with an understanding of what qualifies as research misconduct and questionable research practices, how to avoid committing research misconduct and strategies to employ if they observe it happening.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) and National Institutes of Health (NIH) have established training requirements in RCR for programs supporting research training, career development or research education. All graduate and undergraduate students, postdoctoral fellows and trainees supported by research funds from the NIH and/or NSF are required to complete RCR online modules through the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) and a minimum of eight hours of face-to-face RCR training.

This workshop will count as two hours of the eight face-to-face training hours required by NIH and NSF.

RCR training requirements must be completed prior to the end of the grant-funded activity.

SLU provides a series of RCR workshops throughout the year to help researchers meet the face-to-face training requirements set by NIH. 

Attendance at four workshops will enable a person to meet the requirements. Attending more than four training sessions is encouraged. This training is also highly recommended for all other research positions, including faculty, regardless of funding source or unfunded status.
