Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) 2016-2017 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.

This program also satisfies the research ethics training requirements for NIFA funded projects.
 
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).
