Research Integrity Series: Rigor, Reproducibility, and Transparency

Wednesday, December 4, 2019

3:30pm - 5:00pm

This course is designed to fulfill the NIH requirements for training in the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR), and is coordinated by the Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (OGPS) in the Division of Biology and Medicine at Brown. The Research Integrity Series for Faculty consists of core and elective modules, with content and discussion topics aimed at more experienced scholars in the biomedical and clinical sciences.

Faculty must complete a minimum of 8 hours of in-person core and elective content in order to receive RCR certification. Faculty who began training in this course last year and have yet to complete their 8 hours may continue with this year’s series. Faculty registered for this course may apply up to 1 hr of in-person external RCR training (for example, a departmental workshop, class, or seminar relating to a topic covered in this class). Attendees must provide OGPS with verification of attendance for tracking purposes.

Registration is required to attend. More information about the trainings will be distributed prior to the event. To register, please fill out this form.
