Division of Biology and Medicine Fall Training Sequence
The Division of Biology & Medicine, along with most of the agencies that sponsor biomedical research, require instruction in the Responsible Conduct of Research. This training takes place at various intervals in a scientist's career. The NIH requires that this training includes "substantial face to face discussions". For more information about requirements from the NSF and NIH, please go to their sites that are linked here. The Division's primary training takes place in the Fall of each year and we offer subsequent refresher training throughout the Fall and Spring semesters.
The Fall RCR training sequence organized by the Associate Dean for Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies is required for all entering PhD students in the Division of Biology and Medicine. Others, including postdoctoral researchers, masters students and junior faculty with career development grants are welcome to participate by making a request to [email protected].
The Fall 2018 RCR Session will be offered every Tuesday afternoon between September 18 and October 30, 2018 from 4-6. Please note that this is required training for all 1st year BioMed PhD students and your registration is automatic. For all others who need to take the training, please send an email to [email protected] no later than August 31, 2018.
