American Society for Microbiology - ASM Microbe 2016

The field of microbial sciences is evolving. More and more important discoveries are occurring at the intersections between disciplines. Trans-disciplinary collaboration has never been more important than it is now.

Integrating ASM's two premier events, General Meeting and ICAAC, the all-new ASM Microbe 2016 (June 16–20, 2016, Boston, MA) showcases the best microbial sciences in the world and provides a one-of-a-kind forum to explore the complete spectrum of microbiology from basic science to translation and application.

Abstract submission deadline was January 12, 2016 at 5:00 p.m. ET

Registration opens to everyone: January 7, 2016

Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) 2015-2016 Sessions

Join Us to Satisfy Your Federally-Mandated Training Requirement:
The UC Davis Research Compliance and Integrity Unit is once again offering a comprehensive research ethics program for graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, faculty, staff and NSF funded undergraduate students. This program may also be used to satisfy NIH(http://grants1.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-10-019.html) and NSF(http://www.nsf.gov/bfa/dias/policy/rcr.jsp) training grant requirements for responsible and ethical conduct of research training programs.
The 60 minute lecture-discussion sessions will be offered at both the Davis and Sacramento campuses. Sessions will consist of a lecture by a guest speaker, followed by a question and answer session. Participants must attend a minimum of eight sessions in order to meet the federal requirements and to receive a certificate of completion for the Responsible Conduct of Research program.  
The Davis and Sacramento Schedule of RCR Sessions are attached as well as on the RCI Webpage (http://www.research.ucdavis.edu/rcr).
