To begin training please visit CITI website: Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) Training
Syracuse University has chosen the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) Program through the Biomedical Research Alliance of New York (BRANY) for all online Research Based Training. The CITI Program is the leading global provider of online research ethics education content and opportunities. Individuals required to take CITI training required by Syracuse University must first create an account within the CITI website, or affiliate with Syracuse University if a CITI account is already in existence.
Effective January 4, 2010, the National Science Foundation (NSF) has mandated that all undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral researchers supported by NSF to conduct research must receive appropriate training and oversight in the ethical and responsible conduct of research (RCR).
First time users will need to register. To do this go to CITI website, click on “Register Here” and follow the instructions to complete the registration form.
