Responsible Conduct of Research Workshop Series

The Responsible Conduct of Research Workshop Series prepares participants to integrate research ethics into the design, conduct, oversight and dissemination of research. Workshops will focus on the definition and scope of research misconduct, conflicts of interest, protocols to ensure ethical procedures are used with animals and human subjects, and criteria for determining authorship and responsible data management. 

Workshops are self-contained modules and are free of charge to everyone in the Buffalo Translational Consortium. Those who attend all workshops will receive a CTSI Certificate of Completion and CME credit (if applicable). Learners can also earn a micro-credential/digital badge upon completion of all workshops and weekly assignments, if desired. Digital badges allow learners to showcase their enhanced knowledge of Responsible Conduct of Research within digital resumes, e-Portfolios, or LinkedIn accounts.

Dates: March - April 2024

Time: 4:00 - 5:30 p.m.

Location: Online via Zoom
