Responsible Conduct of Research

Responsible Conduct of Research Training is required for most federal grants. Training for RCR is taken through CITI. You may add the applicable course based on your research project. For example, a human subjects study will require RCR for the behavioral sciences.

          1. Intervention or interaction with human subjects
          2. Collection of identifiable private data on living individuals
          3. Data analysis of identifiable private information on living individuals
