Responsible Conduct of Research Training

The practice of scientific investigation with integrity.

​NIH requires that all trainees, fellows, participants, and scholars receiving support through any NIH training, career development award (individual or institutional), research education grant, and dissertation research grant must receive instruction in responsible conduct of research. 

There are several ways to fulfill the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) requirements for the NIH.  There are the CLSC courses 7150 (Ethics) and 7151 (Responsible Conduct of Human Research), the PHCL course 7605 (Ethics in Research), and the BIOS course 7605 (Ethics: Computational Bioscience Research).  All of these courses independently fulfill the 8 hour requirement. The new lecture series developed by the UCD Office of Regulatory Compliance is  another way to fulfill the NIH requirement.  If a student, researcher or clinical research professional has completed the CLSC, PHCL or BIOS course and would like to attend the new RCR lectures they are welcome to but it is not required.
