Responsible Conduct of Research

NOTE : The Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Training cannot be substituted for the CITI Human Subjects Training required for individuals involved in Human Subjects Research.

CITI training for Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) :
Many research sponsors now require certain individuals supported by grant funds to receive training in the responsible and ethical conduct of research.  All undergraduates, graduate students, or post docs who are associated with an NSF-sponsored project must successfully complete selected modules, appropriate to their academic status (undergraduate, graduate or post doc), of the on-line RCR program applicable to their disciplinary category.

Please refer to the CITI Website for guidance regarding Responsible Conduct of Research Training.
