Next NSF/NIH Research Integrity Training Seminar to be held on February 12

Tags: deans updates, moje, research


The next installment of the School of Education’s required NSF/NIH Research Integrity Training Seminar series will take place on Tuesday, February 12, 2013, from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. in the Tribute Room (room 1322). Please note that this session is a repeat of Module One, and only those NSF- or NIH-funded graduate student researchers or postdoctoral fellows who have not completed Module One will need to attend.

During this session, Elizabeth Moje will focus on planning for and maintaining the ethical treatment of participants in research projects. The specific topics will include how to demonstrate to funders the capacity to conduct responsible and ethical research, tips on preparing IRB applications, and recruiting and enlisting participants.

The SOE’s Research Integrity Training series is offered in response to a mandate from the National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health. All NSF- and NIH-funded graduate students and postdoctoral fellows are required to complete eight hours of face-to-face research integrity training (in addition to completing the PEERS training required of all study team members). If you are an NSF- or NIH-funded graduate student researcher or postdoctoral fellow, please bring your M-card to register your attendance at the session.

The SOE will offer five sessions per year (two in the fall, two in the winter, and one in the spring/summer). GSRAs and fellows have two years to complete their training and can take seminars in any sequence, but must take one of each of the four modules. Modules will be repeated each year.

The session is open to all. Principal Investigators are particularly encouraged to attend with the GSRAs and postdoctoral fellows on their projects. If you plan to attend, RSVP to Angie Underdahl by February 5.
