How can I become and help each person I supervise become an even more responsible and productive researcher?

Federal awarding agencies, such as NSF and HHS, require certain persons supported by a grant or contract to be educated in core areas of responsible conduct of research (RCR). These core areas include but are not limited to:

  • Avoiding research misconduct
  • The protection of human research participants
  • The welfare of regulated laboratory animals
  • Conflicts of interest/commitment
  • Data management
  • Mentor and trainee responsibilities
  • Collaborative research
  • Authorship and publication practices
  • Peer review
  • Responsibilities of scientists in society
