Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR)


This course covers a range of topics typically included in instruction about the responsible conduct of research (RCR). It is intended to be part of a program designed to meet National Institutes of Health (NIH) training grant, career award and National Science Foundation (NSF) award requirements for such instruction.

The original content was derived from courses taught by Dr. Michael Kalichman at the University of California, San Diego and
Dr. Francis Macrina at Virginia Commonwealth University. The present course is further derived from one developed for the

Tri-Institutional Responsible Conduct of Research Program for Research Trainees that had been traditionally sponsored by Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, The Rockefeller University and Weill Cornell Medical College.

Materials and content from 2008-present have been edited, adapted and/or written by Debra Schaller-Demers, MSOM, Director, Research Outreach and Compliance, MSKCC and RCR Course Director.
