Thursday, 10 October, 2019

Oleg Kisselev, Ph.D., and Rachel Millinger, will lead a workshop from 3 to 5 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 10, in Room 113, Learning Resources Center, as part of the University’s Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training series.

This workshop led by Institutional Review Board (IRB) staff and the IRB chair, will provide attendees with a background on the ethical issues in oversight of human research and the role of the IRB in assuring ethical human research.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) require that all graduate and undergraduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and trainees supported by research funds from NIH or NSF complete training in Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) including  a minimum of eight hours of face-to-face RCR training.

Saint Louis University provides a series of two-hour topic focused workshops throughout the year. Attending a minimum of four workshops will attain compliance with the eight-hour requirement. This workshop will count as two hours of the eight face-to-face training hours required by NIH and NSF.

This training is also highly recommended for all other research positions, including faculty, regardless of their funding.

Registration is requested.
