Taking Responsibility for the Responsible Conduct of Research

Taking Responsibility for the Responsible Conduct of Research is a 12-week course for postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty. The course covers the principles for conducting biomedical research ethically as well as how to teach those for whom participants will be responsible. Each week senior faculty and institutional experts instruct on topics such as research misconduct, conflicts of interest, intellectual property and commercialization, and mentoring.

The course is designed for postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty who are recipients of National Institutes of Health or other training awards that require training in Responsible Conduct of Research.
