This training will be held via Zoom meetings. Due to the NIH and NSF’s training requirements for face-to-face ethics training, all participants will be asked to turn on their videos during this meeting. Everyone will be expected to participate in the discussions.
Participants must be present for the duration of the 2-hour training session. Attendance will be checked throughout the session.
RCR TRAINING REQUIREMENTS
This event will help fulfill up to two (2) hours of the RCR requirements for both NSF and applicable NIH awards.
- NIH training requirements: Undergraduates, graduate students, and postdocs on NIH training grants, career awards, or fellowships are required to receive 8 hours of RCR education.
- NSF training requirements: Undergraduates, graduate students, and postdocs on any NSF award are required to receive 1 hour of face-to-face education per year (in addition to one-time completion of the online PERCSS curriculum).
The Program for the Ethical and Responsible Conduct of Science and Scholarship (PERCSS) was created to fulfill the obligations of Washington University to teach and actively promote integrity in science and scholarship. PERCSS offers face-to-face learning sessions, ethics lectures, and online learning modules to provide the tools necessary to help our research community conduct ethical and responsible research.
