Responsible Conduct of Research Workshop
Nov. 12, 3 to 5 p.m., Swanson Hall, Room 10-12.
The University of North Dakota is committed to ensuring that its employees adhere to the highest ethical standards in all research activities performed at the University. Recently, the National Science Foundation (NSF) has made investigator training in the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR), a term used to describe these ethical standards, one of its conditions for any grant or contract supported by the Foundation. In the near future, all awardees will be required to demonstrate that they have been trained in RCR prior to acceptance of an award.
This course is designed to introduce all present NSF awardees, or anyone considering a Federal grant proposal, to the basic ethical issues associated with RCR. Using recent cases from the literature, the course will explore various issues related to financial compliance, conflict of interest, research integrity, and human and animal subject compliance. In addition, the course will cover the University policies concerning these areas and actions in the event of allegations of misconduct.
Presenters: Jon Jackson, assistant professor, anatomy and cell biology; Kathy Sukalski, associate professor, biochemistry and molecular biology; Barry Milavetz, associate vice president for research; and David Schmidt, manager, grants and contracts administration.
This session is sponsored by the Division of Research.
