Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR)

BIMS 7100 Research Ethics – 2017

This course is designed to introduce Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) concepts and issues for biomedical research. Through BIMS 7100, we desire to provide a practical overview of rules, regulations, attitudes and professional practices that contribute to RCR. Students are expected to be prepared for discussion of cases to be presented by the faculty and to bring their reading to bear upon the discussion. The course is not exhaustive and therefore the student is encouraged to continue reading and engage in discussions with their mentors, peers and collaborators as they purse their professional development.

RCR Retraining:
“Reflection on responsible conduct of research should recur throughout a scientist’s career: at the undergraduate, post-baccalaureate, predoctoral, postdoctoral, and faculty levels. . . . Instruction must be undertaken at least once during each career stage, and at a frequency of no less than once every four years . . . To meet the above requirements, instruction in responsible conduct of research may take place, in appropriate circumstances, in a year when the trainee, fellow or career award recipient is not actually supported by an NIH grant.” (Notice Number: NOT-OD-10-019).

Next Offering: Summer, 2017

-Offered approximately every 6 months
