Do you need to complete your IRB or RCR training? Each graduate student needs to know the guidelines for responsible conduct of research. Depending on the discipline, students need to have additional training regarding rules and regulations for conducting research using animals or humans (including surveys) and details related to ownership of work. All doctoral students and all master’s students should be prepared to learn about “Responsible Conduct of Research” training.
On October 19, 2016, UMBC will hold a session to assist with completing certifications. This is not a “regular” lecture. This session includes an introduction to both IRB training and RCR training by Timothy Sparklin (Research Compliance Officer) and Toye Jenkins (Compliance Specialist). It is a work session that will include 30 minutes of overview, but the rest of the time will be set aside for you to work through your protocols for IRB Human Subjects, Responsible Conduct of Research, HIPAA, etc. UMBC’s Office of Research Protections and Compliance utilizes the world-wide Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) certification modules for both the IRB and the RCR training: https://www.citiprogram.org/
