What is this offering?

Responsible Conduct of Research for K Awardees (RCR4K) is a seminar series designed to guide participants in identifying and managing ethics and integrity issues. It offers structured exploration of common research ethics and integrity dilemmas, and regulation. Most sessions will consist of short didactic presentations alternating with small group activities. The program is designed to allow participants to identify and attend sessions most relevant to their own research.

Scholars may attend MICHR RCR4K sessions to fulfill some or all of the NIH training requirement. The NIH requires a minimum of eight hours of face‐to‐face training. Participating K awardees will receive documentation of participation in this training in two-hour increments based on time spent in attendance.
