Re-envisioning Our Culture for the Responsible Conduct of Research: November 10-11

Frank Macrina, Vice President for Research at Virginia Commonwealth University and author of “Scientific Integrity,” will visit UGA on Nov. 10-11 to help us to re-envision our culture for the responsible conduct of research (RCR).

RCR is an important issue that has the potential to severely impact our ability to secure federal support for research and scholarship. RCR issues will become even more important for UGA as we expand experiential learning opportunities for undergraduates, many of whom will be involved in research and scholarship.

The following is a summary of events:

Thursday, Nov. 10, 12:45-4:00, Georgia Center K/L: Train the trainers, hands on session: In this session, Frank will provide training on best practices for training our undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral students in the responsible conduct of research. This session is appropriate for any faculty member or administrator. Space is limited, so please use the link below to register for the event:

Friday, Nov. 11, 10:30-11:30, Georgia Center, Masters Hall: Keynote address: Research Ethics Education in Context: In this session, Frank will provide some context, documenting the need for RCR education. This session is appropriate for all members of the UGA research/scholarship community. Please encourage your students (undergraduate and graduate) and postdocs to attend.

Friday, Nov. 11, 2:00-3:00, Georgia Center Y/Z: RCR Discussion Session: This session, a follow up to the workshop and keynote address, is an opportunity to have more focused discussion with Dr. Marcina.
