BIOMEDICAL POSTDOCTORAL PROGRAMS (BPP)
RESPONSIBLE CONDUCT OF RESEARCH (RCR)

RCR TRAINING PROGRAM

BPP requires all of its Biomedical Postdoctoral Fellows to be trained in Responsible Conduct of Research. Our program is composed of a number of components including mandatory and elective options, which the trainee selects to meet the NIH Guidelines.

The BPP RCR Program includes the following:

Required completion of the two on-line RCR training modules (covers content and provides a framework for discussions) within the first year of postdoc training and eight hours in-person RCR training within the postdoc training level(s).  Seminar series with discussions led by faculty mentors. A minimum of twelve 90-minute sessions will be offered per year covering the required topic areas.  “On Call” support from faculty participation.

Although the NIH Guidelines state that there “are no specific curricular requirements”, our on-line RCR training and seminar sessions will include these ten topic areas:

  1. Conflict of interest
  2. Policies regarding human subjects in research and safe laboratory practices
  3. Policies regarding live vertebrae animals in research and safe laboratory practices
  4. Mentoring and the responsibilities of research supervisors and trainees
  5. Peer review and privileged information
  6. Data acquisition, management, archiving, sharing and ownership
  7. Collaborations and team science
  8. Authorship and publication
  9. Research misconduct and policies for handling it
  10. Scientific rigor and reproducibility
