Responsible Conduct of Research training requirements

All projects funded by the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Agriculture-National Institute of Food and Agriculture, and the National Institutes of Health must include a responsible conduct of research training component for undergraduates and graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and in some cases, research staff and faculty.

At UNL, the RCR initiative is implemented through CITI Program’s RCR series, which researchers can complete through online courses. Anyone with UNL Blackboard credentials can use the CITI training module.

In addition, NIH requires all trainees, fellows, participants and scholars who receive support through any NIH training or career development award, research education grant or dissertation research grant to participate in eight hours of classroom instruction in the responsible conduct of research.

This in-person training applies to the following NIH programs: D43, D71, F05, F30, F31, F32, F33, F34, F37, F38, K01, K02, K05, K07, K08, K12, K18, K22, K23, K24, K25, K26, K30, K99/R00, KL1, KL2, R25, R36, T15, T32, T34, T35, T36, T37, T90/R90, TL1, TU2 and U2R.

UNL will offer a course in spring 2016. More information about the RCR initiative is available on the Research Compliance Services website.
