The Office of Research Integrity, Division of Research Administration has finalized the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) workshop schedule for the fall 2016 semester.
The first workshop, ‘Crossing the Line: Avoiding and Responding to Misconduct and Questionable Research Practices,’ will be held from 2 to 4 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 21, in Busch Student Center 352, offered by Stephanie SolomonCargill.
The RCR workshops are open to everyone at SLU, but are of particular interest for members of the research community, especially those who are trainees.
The complete workshop schedule is as follows:
Researchers should be aware that all graduate and undergraduate students, post-doctoral fellows and trainees paid with research funds from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and National Institutes of Health (NIH) are required to attend a minimum of eight (8) hours of face-to-face RCR training and complete RCR online modules through the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI).
Principal investigators should ensure that any students, fellows and/or trainees working on projects where they are paid with NIH/NSF funds have met these requirements prior to the end of the grant-funded activity.
