Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Seminar Series

The Research Integrity and Compliance Office is again sponsoring the “Responsible Conduct of Research Seminar Series.”  This program is intended to provide participants with an overview of 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 series will be particularly beneficial to individuals who are required by NIH to document RCR education.  While all individuals engaged in research are encouraged to attend this program, an online education program is being used by CMU to satisfy the NSF RCR education requirement.
