Mizzou students, postdoctoral associates, and faculty should all participate in RCR training and related Institutional Review Board training. The National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health now mandate that institutions provide RCR training to undergraduate, graduate students and postdoctoral scholars who are funded by federal research dollars.
Most Americans report highly favorable attitudes toward scientific research. These attitudes will change if cases of research misconduct, falsification of data, improper cash payments and authorship misappropriation are not addressed by a decisive change in the research culture. This project shapes that culture from its inception by training the future professorate — graduate students and postdoctoral fellows — in the responsible conduct of research.
Consult the MU Research site for details about research integrity.
Note: Curriculum includes modules for Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training in various academic disciplines.
