Register Before January 17: Responsible Conduct of Research Training

Harvard Catalyst | The Harvard Clinical and Translational Science Center is offering seating at no cost for 45 MDs, PhDs or the equivalent, at each of two upcoming Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) courses:

Fridays, January 27–March 9, 2012: Harvard School of Public Health, Kresge Hall G1
Fridays, March 16–May 4, 2012: Faculty of Arts and Sciences (location TBD)

Registration for the HSPH course closes on January 17 at 5 p.m.
Applications can be accessed through the RCR webpage on the Harvard Catalyst website (http://catalyst.harvard.edu/services/rcr/).

The courses combine didactics and small-group discussion by research training faculty in fulfillment of recommendations from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Responsible conduct of research instruction is required for all trainees, fellows and scholars who receive grant or award support (for example, for research training and/or education, and career development). NIH also highly encourages substantial face-to-face discussion as a component of successful training. This policy affects all new and renewal applications submitted on or after January of 2010 and all continuation applications with deadlines falling on or after January of 2011.

For details on course contents, visit the Responsible Conduct of Research course page on the Harvard Catalyst website at http://catalyst.harvard.edu/services/rcr/ or contact Andrea Gomes at agomes@fas.harvard.edu or Alyssa Speier at aspeier@hsph.harvard.edu .
