Are you participating in an NIH training grant award or fellowship? Do you need in-person Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training?

The Oregon Clinical and Translational Research Institute (OCTRI) is offering an eight-hour seminar that meets RCR requirements for K, T, and other career development or individual fellowship grants.

This seminar is interactive and practical, and focuses on addressing real issues that have arisen over the course of your research. These issues may be related to ethics, integrity or regulatory matters, including anything from how to recruit and consent patients to how to keep laboratory notebooks to determining authorship.

Who should attend?

This seminar is also open to training grant faculty who have an RCR requirement — faculty members are needed to serve as small group facilitators.

Priority is given to scholars and trainees funded by an NIH K-award, clinical or translational postdoctoral T-award, or any federal or non-federal career development grant.

The CRC training comprises four two-hour sessions. Sessions take place on Fridays from 2 to 4 p.m.

Required: Participants must attend
all four sessions. 

Session 1: Feb. 4
Session 2: Feb. 18
Session 3: March 4
Session 4: March 18
