Responsible conduct of research (RCR) training is an important aspect of IU's curriculum and is required for investigators conducting research supported by NIH, NSF, and PHS. The 2020-2021 RCR Webinar Series is designed to satisfy the NIH RCR in-person education requirement and is open to all members of the IU research community. Join us virtually for the two remaining sessions this spring.

Speakers for the spring sessions are still needed
The Office of Research Compliance is looking for faculty members with expertise in publication and peer review, authorship, data management, collaborative science, and mentor/trainee responsibilities to help lead spring RCR webinar sessions. Most sessions include at least two speakers and involve sharing your knowledge through didactic and interactive discussion with junior researchers. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer, or to recommend a colleague or professor.
IU offers two additional opportunities for meeting RCR training requirements:
RCR modules offer training on a variety of RCR topics including Research Misconduct, Data Management, Authorship, Peer Review, Mentoring, Conflicts of Interest, Collaborative Research, Financial Responsibility, Using Animal Subjects in Research, and Research Involving Human Subjects.
RCR courses at the IU School of Medicine, offered by the Center for Bioethics, continue in accordance with campus requirements regarding COVID-19 protections.
