  • Date: December 12, 2018
  • Time: 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM
  • Location: JSAC 1010

Attention: All faculty, staff, and students who are working on research projects.

You are invited to participate in a Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training sponsored by the Graduate School Dean's Office.  This training will focus on four aspects of collaborative research:

  • Collaboration agreements
  • Mentor/mentee responsibilities and relationships
  • Data sharing: management and ownership
  • Responsible authorship and publication

Federal agencies such as The National Science Foundation (NSF) and The National Institutes of Health (NIH) require faculty, staff, and students working on sponsored projects to receive training in the responsible conduct of research (RCR).

Date: Wednesday, December 12, 2018
Time: 3:30-5:30 p.m.
Location: JSAC 1010

Dr. Clifton Langdon and his Neuroethics course students will lead this training session.  They bring to the discussion a range of backgrounds that include clinical, research, staff, faculty, and student perspectives.  Please join them for a dynamic combination of presentations and case studies and for what is sure to be an informative afternoon that will keep our ethical decision-making skills sharp!

ASL/English interpretation will be provided.
Please contact Liletha Davidson in the Graduate Dean's Office at if you have other accessibility requests.

More about RCR training:
The goal of this training is to educate the university research community about the wide range of ethical and professional issues that must be considered to ensure a climate of research integrity.  The NIH has developed a list of nine areas in particular that must be addressed:

  • Mentor/mentee responsibilities and relationships
  • Collaborative research including collaborations with industry
  • Data sharing, acquisition and laboratory tools: management and ownership
  • Responsible authorship and publication
  • Conflict of interest - personal, professional, and financial
  • Policies regarding human subjects, live vertebrate animal subjects in research, and safe laboratory practices
  • Peer review
  • Research misconduct and policies for handling misconduct
  • The scientist as a responsible member of society, contemporary ethical issues in biomedical research, and the environmental and societal impacts of scientific research.
