Tuesday, 03 December, 2019

John Pijanowski, Ph.D. will lead a workshop from 2-4 p.m., Tuesday, December 3, 2019, in the Busch Student Center BSC 254, as part of the University’s Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training series.

This workshop provides attendees with a background on the ethical issues in decision making and moral courage.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) require that all graduate and undergraduate students, post-doctoral 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.
