ORI Training for RCR Instruction
ORI currently is planning a Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Instruction Workshop for March 2018. The purpose of this two-day train-the-trainers workshop is to help new or inexperienced RCR instructors to develop and implement best practices in RCR instruction. The training is open to current RCR coordinators and instructors. Those interested should contact Tracey Randolph (Tracey.Randolph@hhs.gov).
Learn about the New Common Rule
Register now for a pre-seminar workshop at the NIH Regional Seminar in Baltimore, MD, on October 25, 2017. The workshop, “Human Research Reviews: Mastering the Process,” is aimed at early-stage investigators who want to learn more about the human subjects research review process and how it aligns with NIH’s processes. The workshop also will cover relevant changes in the revised Common Rule.
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to engage with the HHS Office for Human Research Protections and NIH staff and network with other investigators and human research professionals. Participation in this full-day workshop could fulfill the NIH human subjects training requirement for key personnel. Participants who complete the workshop will be given a certificate of completion.
