Join Us to Satisfy Your Federally-Mandated Training Requirement:
The UC Davis Research Compliance and Integrity Unit is once again offering a comprehensive research ethics program for graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, faculty, staff and NSF funded undergraduate students. This program may also be used to satisfy NIH(http://grants1.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-10-019.html) and NSF(http://www.nsf.gov/bfa/dias/policy/rcr.jsp) training grant requirements for responsible and ethical conduct of research training programs.
The 60 minute lecture-discussion sessions will be offered at both the Davis and Sacramento campuses. Sessions will consist of a lecture by a guest speaker, followed by a question and answer session. Participants must attend a minimum of eight sessions in order to meet the federal requirements and to receive a certificate of completion for the Responsible Conduct of Research program.
The Davis and Sacramento Schedule of RCR Sessions are attached as well as on the RCI Webpage (http://www.research.ucdavis.edu/rcr).

Starting in July, The American Society for Microbiology (ASM) is offering the “how to” guide to better mentoring. Mentoring Mondays is a free professional development webinar series. It blends virtual webinars and an interactive discussion forum for all-encompassing mentor training. The program is specifically designed for research investigators interested in (1) learning more about effective mentoring, (2) establishing beneficial mentoring relationships, and (3) implementing novel mentoring strategies to improve research programs. Because we all recognize the importance of mentoring, ASM has created this program to teach even the most seasoned researchers effective ways to integrate mentoring into your research programs. Both you and your trainees will reap the benefit of an improved mentoring relationship.
