Researcher Central: Tools and information to help PIs succeed

Fall 2014 Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Series

13 Friday sessions

September 5 - December 5
(no session November 28)
11:00 a.m.-Noon
Enderis 107

Registration required
(Limit 120 attendees)

The National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) require that all undergraduate students, graduate students, and post-doctoral researchers who receive financial support for research through NSF or NIH must receive training and oversight in the responsible and ethical conduct of research (RCR).

UWM has a high-quality program that meets the requirements of the funding agencies and provides meaningful RCR training to students, faculty and staff. This seminar series will cover data integrity, plagiarism, financial and other conflicts of interest, working with human subjects, radiation safety, animal care, and other topics.

The need to meet regulatory requirements aside, the seminar presents us with an opportunity to induct all of our researchers into a campus-wide culture of ethical research. Therefore, all faculty, staff and students are encouraged to attend.

The Fall 2014 Responsible Conduct of Research series will be held on Fridays, from September 5 to December 5, 11:00 a.m.-noon, in Enderis 107. Space constraints limit the fall seminar series to 120 attendees, so early reservations are highly recommended. To register, go to:


Registration will remain open until September 5, 2014. No late registrations will be accepted.

Missed Session Policy
