Responsible Conduct of Research

This website is a guide for RCR training with information for faculty, clinician scientists, graduate students, postdocs and other research staff.


Here you will find useful information including key contacts, RCR training schedules, course syllabi, links to relevant external sites, template RCR text for grant proposals, and the most appropriate training program for you arranged by trainee type. 

At UCSF we strive to create a culture that supports responsible conduct of research — not just offer RCR coursework — giving attention to the societal implications of basic science and clinical research. Whether you are a young scientist in training or a senior faculty member,  embracing this theme is an essential part of a successful research career.
