Responsible Conduct of Research
Responsible Conduct of Research
The NIH requires formal training in the responsible conduct of research. Per the NIH, Instruction must be undertaken at least once during each career stage, and at a frequency of no less than once every four years. Stanford has a specific class to address this: Med 255 Responsible Conduct of Research Class
Because these courses fill very quickly, we strongly encourage students to enroll for the course you want on the day that Axess opens for the term in which you wish to take the course.
Graduate students may enroll through Axess.
Post-docs, faculty, staff, affiliates, and others may enroll through STARS.
For further information, please contact email@example.com.
