Training Seminar: Responsible Conduct of Research

Wednesday, April 28 2010 at 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM


The College of Graduate Studies and Office of Research Assurances offer a seminar featuring a presentation by Lorraine McConnell, chief research compliance officer from the University's Office of Research and Economic Development. Her presentation on Wednesday, April 28, from 3-5 p.m., is titled "Responsible Conduct of Research Training," and takes place in the Idaho Commons Crest Room. It is open to members of the University community.

The National Science Foundation now requires training for all undergraduate, graduate and post-doctoral students working on projects funded by NSF. This training has been designed to meet the areas recommended by NSF and the Office of Research Integrity. The seminar includes information on research obligations, resources for assistance with questions that may arise during the course of research activities and explores some of the ethical dilemmas that arise as part of research. General areas covered include: "rules of the road", research planning, conducting research, and reporting and reviewing research.
