Responsible Conduct of Research Training

An annual session on Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) will be offered at 9:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. (CDT) Thursday, June 1, at the University of South Dakota’s Lee Medical Building, Room 105 and via Zoom for those unable to attend in-person.

The University of South Dakota’s Division of Basic Biomedical Sciences is the main sponsor, along with South Dakota BRIN.

It is each researcher’s responsibility to ensure that all research done under his/her direction is carried out in an ethical and legal manner. To assist with this, the National Science Foundation (NSF) and National Institutes of Health (NIH) have selected certain foundational topics in Responsible Conduct of Research, aimed at developing graduate students and postdocs, in particular. It is recommended that all researchers attend such training every 4 years throughout their careers.


This 2 ½ hour workshop covers topics relevant to animal and human subjects research, research compliance, publications, mentorship and disseminating your findings to a broader audience. Presenters will discuss how individuals and organizations can support researchers in establishing proper protocols to support transparency that results in an increased understanding of research compliance and decreased risk for research misconduct.
