Attention Faculty and Graduate Students

NEW Responsible Conduct of Research Seminar Series

Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR)

This program is intended to provide participants with an introduction to topics typically covered in Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) curriculum.  Each session will be lead by professionals with significant experience in academic research.  The sessions will be part lecture and part discussion of case studies.  Group discussion is intended to help participants understand the complexity of these issues.  This will be particularly beneficial to individuals who are required by sponsors to document RCR education.

This program is open to CMU students, faculty and staff.  Certificates of attendance will be provided. Participants may choose which sessions to attend.
Registration is required.  This fall, preference will be given to individuals with NIH funding that requires an RCR Education Plan.  Register here [Link].

The CMU IRB and Human Subjects Research

The CMU IRB is holding several general education sessions this fall.  The purpose of these is to provide an overview of the IRB process at CMU and to answer questions researchers have about human subjects research.  These will be helpful for both new and experienced researchers.  We are asking people to register for this so we can plan appropriately.
