RCR Workshop Series for Postdocs and Faculty

The workshops are open to any interested postdoctoral scientist, mentor, staff, faculty member, or senior graduate student, but the workshops should only be attended by students that have previously completed the GC 501 course. If you have any questions about the RCR Workshop Series for Postdocs and Faculty, please contact the Office of Research Integrity.

The RCR Workshop Series for Postdoctoral Scholars and Faculty was designed to address the National Institutes of Health (NIH) RCR training requirements (NOT-OD-10-019 and NOT-OD-22-055) for NIH grant awardees and applicants. If you would like to include this workshop in your NIH application, a template is available for download. NIH Awards and Applications that require RCR training include F32, K99/R00, K01, K08, K12, K23 and K24 programs, among others. The workshop also meets the National Science Foundation (NSF) training requirements (PAPPG 23-1) for faculty and senior investigators.

The RCR Workshop Series for Postdoctoral Scholars and Faculty was recently revised to address the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Rigor and Reproducibility (R&R) training requirements (NOT-OD-20-033 and NOT-020-090) for NIH grant awardees and applicants. Sessions that could count toward R&R Training are denoted with a ‡ following the title. More information from the NIH on R&R training can be found on the NIH FAQ. If you would like to include this workshop in your NIH application, a template is under development. NIH Awards and Applications that require R&R training include D43, D71, F05, F30, F31, F32, F33, F34, F37, F38, K01, K02, K05, K07, K08, K12, K18, K22, K23, K24, K25, K26, K30, K99/R00, KL1, KL2, R25, R36, T15, T32, T34, T35, T36, T37 T90/R90, TL1, and TU2.
