Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Training

The Office of Research Integrity is announcing the fall 2019 Responsible Conduct of Research course. It will be held. 
Saturday, September 7, 9:00am-3:30pm in 401 IARC.
The Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training covers core norms, principles, regulations, and rules governing the practice of research. This particular workshop fulfills the National Science Foundation (NSF) and National Institutes of Health (NIH) requirements for formal RCR instruction. This is the only formal RCR training at UAF this semester.  RCR is a highly recommended “best practices” course for those wanting to deepen their knowledge of ethical research and responsible conduct. It is also an excellent professional opportunity for anyone interested in furthering a career in research.
