Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR)

Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR), a 4-part seminar series focused on research ethics for undergraduate researchers:

  1. Communication and Collaboration -  (What you should expect from the relationships you have with the principal investigator, the graduate students, the post-docs and understand what training you should have before you start.)
  2. Laboratory Safety -  (Research involves inherent risks to those working in the laboratory. If you plan to work with viruses, radiation, or other potentially harmful substances, learn how to protect yourself and understand what training you should have before you start.)
  3. Humans and Animals -  (When performing research involving humans or animals it is important to understand your responsibilities. This session will cover how to protect human subjects in research as well as outline the practices employed by the University to ensure humane care and use of animals in research.)
  4. Data Management (Data management encompasses many topics including acquisition, analysis, security, confidentiality, sharing, custody, and retention of data. This seminar will introduce the standards available for managing research data and providing guidelines for best practices.)

Certificate of Completion is awarded for completing all four sessions. RCR is co-sponsored by the Office of Research Administration and SOURCE.
