Responsible research conduct workshop offered

Student researchers and others can take the Responsible Conduct in Research training workshop from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Aug. 26 in Fairbanks.

Preregister by Aug. 16. Space is limited to 30. Individuals affiliated with the University of Alaska Fairbanks, the University of Alaska Southeast and Ilisagvik College are eligible.

The workshop fulfills National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health requirements for formal research conduct instruction. This is the only such training at UAF this semester.

The NIH requires research conduct training for everyone working on the projects it funds. That includes students participating in the Biomedical Learning and Student Training program as scholars, graduate mentoring research assistants and undergraduate research experience awardees.

The training uses discussions and case studies to examine basic ethical and regulatory requirements for conducting research. Participants must attend all modules presented, participate in workshop discussions and complete an online training. A certificate will be issued to all participants upon successful course completion.
